Conference Topic

How are people today “reading” in digital, networked environments? For example, what is the relation between reading and browsing, or searching? Or between reading and multimedia? Can innovations in technologies or interfaces increase the productivity, variety, and pleasure of these new kinds of reading? How can the historical diversity of human reading practices help us gauge the robustness of the new digital practices; and, inversely, how can contemporary practices provide new ways to understand the technical, social, and cultural dimensions of historical reading?

In what terms can we discuss the cultural significance, value, and function of reading in the age of new media and multimedia, a moment when multi-sensory immersive experience seems to be privileged?

(Seed question for Roundtable 2: Reading and Media)

What is the contemporary role of text in relation to images and audio?
