transforming the stories we tell and our modes of telling them?Digital
technology is frequently invoked as a trope of both continuity and rupture
in our time. Digital cultures articulate and are articulated, speak and
segment, transforming bits and pieces into stories and stories back into
bits. But how? Motivating the focus of this conference is a questioning
of how our practices of reading, writing, creating, analyzing, publishing,
teaching, and thinking are being transformed by the Digital.This UC

cultures, addressing the topic across such disciplinary fields as:*
literature and poetics* copyrights and archiving* e-journals and
publication practices* games and interactive narratives* code and
linguistics* scholarship systems and networksThe final event of
