Rupali Sharma

Abstract


Literary scholarship may well be able to maintain its important position in the digitized world, but this requires open dialogue with cultural and media studies.

The two main arguments are: First, literature in the traditional sense has given way to electronic and increasingly, digital media in the overall media landscape.
