Travelling Cultures. Literature, Media and Digital Technologies

Lucia Esposito, Emanuela Piga, Alessandra Ruggiero

Abstract


In presenting this special issue on Technology, Imagination, Narrative Forms (4.8, 2014), the editors’ aim is to provide an overview of theories, methodologies and texts useful to frame the latest developments of storytelling and their cross-fertilization with digital cultures. The varied interconnections between literature and technology are explored considering the ways in which the articles contained in the different sections of the journal respond to issues such as: the thematic or metaphoric representations of new or futuristic technologies in literature; the interaction between digital culture and more ‘traditional’ literary forms – from digital versions of classics to the use of IT technologies to facilitate experimental narrative techniques; the transformation of narrative under the influence of new media environments; the growth of transmedia storytelling and fanfiction as typical expressions of the new convergent and participative culture.


Keywords
