Description

Why is reading from a printed page different from reading on a screen? Why are the same words suddenly not the same? English Studies already has a number of ways-in to discussing the issues around this change in the way we're reading, from looking at how media and culture have always intertwined, to considering how meaning is affected by context. But what other disciplines might English Studies benefit from engaging with in its attempts to study the new technologies of cultural production and reproduction? And to what extent can Humanities scholars deal with the hard sciences anyway? What kind of discipline emerges from their meeting?
