Online/Offline - Between Text and Experience: Writing as a Lifestyle Paperback

Description

This volume raises provocative questions about the status of words and literature in contemporary culture.

It argues that words and images are equal and that the vast number of text messages, e-mails, tweets, comments, blogs, and daily social network posts confirms textuality's central role in new media.

This is especially true of writing, as old and new forms mix online and off, reconfiguring so prolifically that no single theory can explain it, let alone project its future.

This volume explores multiple questions in depth: are microblogs a new literary genre?

What happens when Japanese haiku crosses cultures? Is writing still an act of individuality or has it become a modern technological innovation?
