2008's "New Media Literacies, Gutenberg to Google" seminar has reconvened as a working group focusing on "Literature and New Media." This working group will address a variety of questions surrounding the adoption of new communication technologies, past and present:
- What social and cultural changes make media shift possible?
- How have new media transformed politics, social interaction, law and citizenship, the economy, the alliance of art and technology, education, even literacy itself?
- What are the implications of new media for pedagogy and for scholarship?
