Roundtable event hosted at Kingston University, London on the 12th of July 2010.
Key note speech by Professor Jay David Bolter. His talk focused on 'Elite and Popular: Digital Art and Literature in an Era of Social and Locative Media' and on a series of questions gathered and sent to the participants before the roundtable (See http://fass.kingston.ac.uk/activities/item.php?updatenum=1395) which Bolter divided in between:
1. how does digital literature relate to traditional (academic) literary community or to traditional art community?
2. how does it fit into our culture’s media practices today?
