Reading Moving Letters

Digital Literature in Research and Teaching. A Handbook

Edited by Roberto Simanowski, Jörgen Schäfer, and Peter Gendolla

Transcript-Verlag

Digital media is increasingly finding its way into the discussions of the humanities classroom. But while there is a number of grand theoretical texts about digital literature there as yet is little in the way of resources for discussing the down-to-earth practices of research, teaching, and curriculum necessary for this work to mature. This book presents contributions by scholars and teachers from different countries and academic environments who articulate their approach to the study and teaching of digital literature and thus give a broader audience an idea of the state-of-the-art of the subject matter also in international comparison.
Reading Moving Letters is a rich, user-friendly, and thought-stimulating contribution to the discourse, and provides both substantial theoretical and new practical insights. Anna Katharina Schaffner, JLTonline
