Short Session Description and Submission Information (for a longer description see below):

This panel seeks to explore the aesthetic consequences of digital reproducibility in hyperfiction and virtual realities. It thus focuses on three dimensions of the new media: (1) The notion of the Sign; (2) Communication; (3) Aesthetics and Literature. Therefore the relations between author, recipient and text will be in the center of discussion. Please send 500 word abstracts and brief biographical statements to Julia Genz ( or Ulrike Küchler (
Deadline: September 30, 2010

Please include with your abstract:
Name and Affiliation

The 42nd Annual Convention will feature approximately 360 sessions, as well as pre-conference workshops, dynamic speakers and cultural events. Details and the complete Call for Papers for the 2011 Convention will be posted in June:
Interested participants may submit abstracts to more than one NeMLA session; however panelists can only present one paper (panel or seminar). Convention participants may present a paper at a panel and also present at a creative session or participate in a roundtable. Do not accept a slot if you may cancel to present on another session.

“Cyber Aesthetics: Communication, Literature and Digital Reproducibility”
(long session description)

New media´s global dissemination within the past decade provided the basis for hyperfiction projects (Michael Joyce), social networks (Facebook) and virtual realities (Second Life). The increasing importance of digital mass media affects two relations of crucial importance to communication processes and literature:
First, the temporarily and spatially independent access to digital worlds influences the boundaries between author and recipient. The physical presence of conventional mediums like books is “monologic” as the communicative situation is based on a monodirectional relationship from one author to several readers. In contrast, the virtual presence of digital worlds is “polylogic” providing a space where everybody can be author and has access to contents of other authors.
Since the text becomes a collaborative product, secondly, reproducibility and the relationship between author and text are addressed. Already Walter Benjamin discussed technical reproducibility as a characteristic of mass media. The question, however, is in how far the newly provided digital reproducibility can be distinguished from his approach regarding the specific consequences.
Therefore this panel seeks to explore three dimensions of the new media: (1) The notion of the Sign; (2) Communication; (3) Aesthetics and Literature. Paper proposals should relate to associated questions such as: How do the new media influence sign systems and languages? How can we describe the relation between digitality and orality/literacy? Does a new quality of communication emerge from an interaction of orality, literacy and other sign systems (images, music…)? How do fictionality and reality relate to each other? How does the digital character influence production and recipient aesthethics? Do new forms of illiteracy emerge from insufficient plurimedial competences both on inventor and user level? Does a new form of communication result in new forms of literature, genres and the like? How does a redefinition of authorship relate to issues like copyright and plagiarism?
