This convention will bring together scholars working across the broad field of literary studies to discuss the literary as an interface between different forms of knowledge and processes of knowledge formation, looking at questions of how and through what means the literary is communicated, represented, negotiated, and remade. By placing the concept of the literary centre-stage while at the same time interrogating its role as an interface, we wish to open up for discussion questions about the role, dynamism, and value of the literary in a time of institutional change and ongoing disciplinary formation.

"JOURNALISM, MEDIA AND MASS COMMUNICATION AT THE CROSSROADS"
Today’s media exist in an age of challenging dichotomies: truth versus 'post-truth', facts versus 'alternative facts’ and news versus ‘fake news'. If media practitioners find this evolving environment perplexing, what of their audiences? The media landscape increasingly comprises traditional and new media - and media producers range from experienced professionals who publish or broadcast their work widely, to relative novices who use the internet and social media to access niche audiences. Regulated and unregulated media compete for audiences, but what implications for trust are there to the monetisation of falsehood?
