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.
