Literature Error: Restart or Cancel? The author died and the lonely and silent reader may have died as well, long live the user, the crowd, the coders and web designers – this is how one could summarize the core of the workshop planned by the =mcminstitute of the University of St.Gallen in regard of literature taking place within the digital age. Therefore we gladly invite all media und literature enthusiasts to take part in discussions about how the ongoing digitalization changes dispositifs like authorship, storytelling, reading, interpreting, literary property, responsibility and the experience of literature and culture, about whether this is good or bad and whether it forces us to rethink our approach to literature and culture. Workshop audience On the occasion of its 20th anniversary the =mcminstitute is looking forward to meet those challenges and assemble fragments to form an aesthetic or philosophy of digitalization together with practitioners, scholars of culture, media and literature, philosophers and students.
