Writing Today

Presiding Officer: 
Karin Bauer, McGill University

This session invites papers that explore innovative and experimental contemporary forms of writing. From formal innovations in prose to blogs, digital dairies, and collective writing projects, traditional perceptions of what literature is, how it is produced and distributed, and how it functions are increasingly challenged and displaced. This session investigates formal, stylistic, methodological, and/or technical transformations in literature today and how media technology and social media generate a shift in our understanding of literary projects. Submissions are welcome from all literatures on any of the above aspects of the session topic.
