This program will focus on literary practices in the digital age, and Internet literature in particular, which appeared in China at the end of 1990s and created a new space in the local literary landscape and developed on a remarkable scale. The programme will be organised around two main research themes: “Literary practices and its relationship with traditional literature“ and “trans-mediality” (literary specificities linked to new technology). The aim will be to examine literary continuity and innovation in relation to the new socio-cultural context.
