Abstract:

Social media has led to unprecedented changes in the way we understand the world. In penetrating every sphere of life, it is shifting the grounds on what counts as reality. Yet literary scholars struggle to account for what this new epistemological context means for literary study. The lecture looks at the ways in which social media challenges our archives, traditions, and conventions, but also opens up the possibility for inventing new literary concepts.

All welcome!
