International symposium and related live events
bringing together theorists, researchers and practitioners to stimulate a dialogue across disciplines on the ability of the book to keep up with digital culture and the emergence of new modes of writing, of photographing, of reading, or archiving and of disseminating ‘on the page’ work. The purpose of this event is to examine the current ‘transforming’ and ‘expanding’ of the page rather than its virtual disintegration.
