Abstract

In presenting a special issue of “Between Journal” on Technology, Imagination, Narrative Forms (4.8, 2014), this article explores the varied interconnections between literature and technology in the contemporary age, and tries to define the contours of theoretical frameworks for a wider consideration of digital humanities. It does so by mapping some of their inflections in narrative at large, such as: the thematic or metaphoric representations of new or futuristic technologies in literature; the interaction between digital culture and more ‘traditional’ literary forms – from digital versions of classics to the use of IT technologies to facilitate experimental narrative techniques; the transformation of narrative under the influence of new mediascapes; the growth of intermedia or transmedia storytelling as a typical expression of the new convergent and participative culture.
