Between Paper and Pixels

Between Paper and Pixels

Conference poster

The conference Between Paper and Pixels took place at Aarhus University on 19 and 20 May, organized by the Centre for Literature between Media. 

The conference discussed how the literary field is in a state of transition. Radical developments in the media ecology throughout the last decades (not least the digital revolution) have resulted in new possibilities and challenges for authors, readers and publishers. Through centuries, literature’s status as a written and book-based art form has been taken for granted, but the emergence of new media has severed the natural bond between literature, writing and books. Amongst the keynote speakers was Angus Phillips, Director of the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, whose paper was entitled 'What now for the book?'

Turning the Page - new book by Angus Phillips

A new book by Angus Phillips, Director of the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, is now published by Routledge. In Turning the Page he analyses the fundamental drivers of the book publishing industry - authorship, readership, and copyright - and examines the effects of digital and other developments on the book itself.

Drawing on theory and research across a range of subjects, from business and sociology to neuroscience and psychology, and from interviews with industry professionals, the book investigates how the fundamentals of the book industry are changing in a world of ebooks, self-publishing, and emerging business models. Useful comparisons are also made with other media industries which have undergone rapid change, such as music and newspapers.
