PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Comparative Textual Media: Transforming the Humanities in the Postprint Era For the past few hundred years Western cultures have relied on print When writing was accomplished by a quill pen inkpot and paper it was easy to imagine that writing was nothing more than a means by which writers could transfer their thoughts to readers The proliferation of technical media in the latter half of the twentieth century has revealed that the relationship between writer and reader is not so simple From telegraphs and typewriters to wire recorders and a sweeping array of digital computing devices the complexities of communications technology have made mediality a central concern of the twenty first century .
Despite the attention given to the development of the media landscape relatively little is being done in our academic institutions to adjust In i Comparative Textual Media i editors N Katherine Hayles and Jessica Pressman bring together an impressive range of essays from leading scholars to address the issue among them Matthew Kirschenbaum on archiving in the digital era Patricia Crain on the connection between a child s formation of self and the possession of a book and Mark Marino exploring how to read a digital text not for content but for traces of its underlying code .
Primarily arguing for seeing print as a medium along with the scroll electronic literature and computer games this volume examines the potential transformations if academic departments embraced a media framework Ultimately i Comparative Textual Media i offers new insights that allow us to understand more deeply the implications of the choices we and our institutions are making .
