Course Content (Syllabus)
The seminar aims to discuss the radical changes introduced by computers and the internet to crucial concepts in literary studies as "text", "writing", "reading", that remained immutable for centuries. Combining theory and practice, it will try to answer questions regarding the role of the reader in the new technological environment, the status of the process writing-publishing/printing in the new digital world, the terms/ingredients of narration change etc. The seminar’s approach is interdisciplinary (literary history and theory, philology, cultural studies), in order a. to address the complexity of digital literary studies and initiate the students to the new literacy of writing and reading in the digital era and to the terms and concepts that go along (e.g. world wide web, hypertext, multilateral information, interactivity); b. to evaluate the undergoing changes.
