Lit & Info Working Group Meeting
Wednesday, March 28, 2018 - 6:00pm
"Information" and "information society" are key words of the contemporary moment. The latter term refers to the broad social, economic, political, and cultural transformations that attended the proliferation of new media technologies in the second half of the twentieth century. We have been motivated to propose this working group by a shared interest in understanding both how these new media are changing our field-the way we (literary scholars, our students, the general public) tell stories, the way we read, the way we write, the way we think-and what we may learn about these changes from literary works and literary criticism.
