Forms of Innovation invites speakers to consider how varying forms of creative literary production and reception have responded to innovative technological processes across the centuries.
This one-day symposium will provide a forum for postgraduate and early-career researchers to discuss correspondences and interrelations between literary forms and technologies, particularly those which have been treated as new, revolutionary, unconventional or challenging. It will provide a historical perspective on contemporary issues by addressing the relationship between literature and technology from the medieval period onwards.
For those interested in presenting at this event, the Call for Papers closes on 20th July, 2012. The symposium will take place on 14th September at Durham University.
