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.
