This collection offers an extensive overview of how new technologies are changing the nature of literary studies. Siemens (Humanities Computing, English, University of Victoria, Canada) and Schreibman (Digital Collections and Research, University of Maryland Libraries) gather specially commissioned articles by leading scholars, theorists, and writers creating born-digital literature to look at the intersections between computing, literary studies, and new media. The interdisciplinary contributors examine topics such as scholarly editing and literary criticism, interactive fiction and gaming, multimedia and immersive environments, and e-books. A section on traditions examines the use of digital resources for studying various literary genres and eras, and a section on textualities explores blogging, a virtual codex, and reading in an era of hypertextuality. Essays on methodologies consider issues related to electronic scholarly editions, writing machines, and character encoding. The book concludes with a 20-page annotated overview of selected electronic resources. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
