Don't Touch. Distance And Proximity In Literature And In The Digital Space

Lesung I internationales literaturfestival berlin

What does literature look like in a digital age? Digitization has changed the feel, appearance, and forms of reception and production of literature in a lasting way. New text forms are emerging and the relationship between writers and readers is changing. Authors will discuss how technical mediation shapes encounters with and in literature between new proximity and distance with scientists from the Cluster of Excellence »Temporal Communities: Doing Literature in a Global Perspective« from Freie Universität.                                                                                                                                 In cooperation with the Cluster of Excellence 2020 Temporal Communities: Doing Literature in a Global Perspective.
