In the past decades digital technologies, new media art, Web 2.0 practices, cybertextualities, and electronic archives have become inescapable presences in the field of knowledge/s and the “unprecedented complexity of the digital”, in Arthur Kroker’s terms, is increasingly changing the very nature of our ways of processing information, theories, cultures, relationships.
Literature has grown well beyond the borders of the printed page, at the same time reinscribing itself across, rather than within, the borders of the nation-state. Our panel focuses on literature and textualities that have to do with aesthetics, forms and techniques made available by digital innovations. We want to consider how they are informed by and how they substantiate new (and old) fluid, variably visible, often contested communities formed in the vast trans-hemispheric multilingual contact zones created by instant communication, English as a lingua franca, electronic translators and g-local connectivity.
