Come and join us at the third IAS Time Theme Workshop which will be looking at Time, Text and Media.
Time is one of the fundamental dimensions of human existence and human experience. Texts, which incorporate and relate human experience, unfold in space and time and traditional texts (literary and non-literary) reproduce the passing of time through the lenses of human experience. Yet, with the advent of digital communication and the unprecedented, widespread production and consumption of digital texts, time has undergone a radical change: the digital dimension has uncovered a more complex notion of time that merges with hyperspace and that can be represented and perceived in multi-faceted ways. This workshop will investigate and discuss the changing notion of Time in relation to Text and Media, with a particular focus on the development of digital environments and digitally experienced texts, in order to formulate a more complex and ‘up-to-date' definition of this fundamental concept.
