        Subject: call for papers on literary theory and media change

Call for Articles: Journal of Literary Theory, Vol. 6, No. 2 (2012)

Submission Deadline: January 15th 2012

Literature is part of a media world that does not only change the 
physical aspects of reading by introducing e-books, audio books and 
other formats, but which links literature to the realms of movies, 
hypertexts, social media and other phenomena, where different 
hierarchies of aesthetic objects and their evaluation apply. How do 
these changes affect concepts and theories of literature?

Papers are welcome that systematically analyze the changing attitudes, 
terms and concepts of literary theory provoked by recent (or not so 
recent) shifts in (digital) media environments.

Possible topics could include, but are not limited to the discussion of 
changes in reading habits, possibilities opened up to research by 
digital corpora, aspects of media competition, convergence, and 
combination in relation to literature, aspects of the history of media 
or literature studies.

Contributions should not exceed 50,000 characters in length and have to 
be submitted until January 15th, 2012.

Please submit your contribution electronically via our website
www.jltonline.de under 'Articles'. Articles are chosen for publication 
by an international advisory board in a double-blind review
