New tastemakers and Australia's post-digital literary culture
Grant number: DP170103192 | Funding period: 2017 - 2021
This project aims to investigate the effect of digital technologies on taste-making in Australian literary culture. The project will examine how digital media and platforms such as eBooks, online forums, blogs and social media have changed how Australian literature is produced, distributed and consumed, and what this means for the future of Australian literature. The project expects to understand the effect of digital practices on Australian literary culture, and support the continued development and cultural significance of Australia’s book industry in a globalised market for literature.
