Digitox seminar May 2021
The embodiment of reading in the age of digitalization
What happens to concentration and reading comprehension when longer texts are consumed by screens instead of paper? This seminar will draw some headlines from empirical reading research to the field of disconnection studies, contributing to and challenging our understanding of digital detox.
In this Digitox digital seminar, we are delighted to have Professor Anne Mangen (University of Stavanger) as an invited guest. Anne will introduce recent empirical reading research, under the heading «Reading, materiality and embodiment in the age of digitalization».
This is followed by a presentation by Kari J. Spjeldnæs (Ph.D. Candidate, Kristiania University College): «Pros and cons of digital reading for the reader. Notes from a literary review».
