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.

Keynote Speaker: Associate Professor Nicholas Dames, Departments of Comparative Literature and English, Columbia University

The Bancroft Library and the Departments of English and Comparative Literature at UC Berkeley invites scholars of all disciplines to submit papers to the History of the Book and Reading Townsend Center Working Group conference. This conference will explore what comprises the field we call “History of the Book.”

How do reading and writing practices inflect or constitute meaning?
How do changes in book media—from wax tablets, to scrolls, to codices, to electronic texts and beyond—inform structures of reading and perhaps change what it means to read?
What do print and material cultures across periods and geographies reveal about texts?
How might intellectual property relate to its physical media, particularly in terms of piracy and copyright practices?
What are the effects of the spaces and conditions of reading—in, on, and around the page?
