The Center for Literature between Media, Aarhus University, has the pleasure to invite you to a seminar on the changing notions and modes of reading in the current literary field. The digitization of the publishing business has provided publishers with new media and new means of distribution, which in turn have created new modes of reading. At the same time, the printed book has proven as resilient as ever, so the profusion of new reading modes created by e.g. e-books, audiobooks and interactive media co-exists with earlier forms of reading. The aim of the seminar is to shed light on some of the many different notions and modes of reading (and readers) that currently characterize the literary field, and to discuss what has changed, and what has remained the same. By bringing together scholars from literary theory, media studies, anthropology and other disciplines we hope to bring different disciplinary perspectives to bear on how the technological, sensorial, cognitive, participatory and aesthetic aspects of reading have evolved in recent decades.
