Undergraduate Webinar: English Literature taster session - Literature, Media and the Digital World Online, 16:30 - 17:30
Mon 24 May 2021 - 16:30 to 17:30

This talk will explore the relations between literature and other media, from the birth of cinema to the digital age. We will discuss how writing appropriates the forms and techniques of visual and digital media, and consider the impact of the internet, big data, virtual reality, social media and video games on our consciousness, and how literature is mediated through new technologies. Did you know Dr Tony Paraskeva is a practicing filmmaker, and has recently completed the first stage of post-production on a feature film that he wrote and directed.
