Across Media

Christiansen, S. L. (Participant)

    Activity: Attending an eventConference organisation or participation

    Description

    Contemporary cultural expression can perhaps more than ever before be characterized as transaesthetic phenomena. Western media culture, modern technology and the processes of globalization have caused an increase in the occurrence of transmedial and multimodal hybrids, the blending of public and private spheres, and have undermined the traditional academic boundaries between the arts. The relational, digital and performative nature of much contemporary literary expression poses theoretical and methodological challenges to the study of literature and calls for an increased dialogue between scholars affiliated with various academic fields.
