The enduring power of storytelling is undeniable and the printed book has proved resilient, even in the face of digitisation and the global pandemic. So what does the future have in store for reading, storytelling and the ‘text’ in a world where visual media is increasingly dominant? How does this influence our understanding and construction of the past? How are the ways we read and experience texts changing? Come along to this discussion to hear our panellists explore these and other questions.
Join Dr Shafquat Towheed (the Open University), Professor Kate Pullinger (Bath Spa University) and Professor Roger Sabin (Central St Martins, University of the Arts London), with a video essay from Jason Steinhauer, (Wilson Center, USA) for this discussion about the past, present and future of our cultural heritage and production.
A Q&A and drinks reception will follow.
This event is part of Palgrave Macmillan's 'Campaign for the Humanities'.
