Panelists consider literature as a window on media change. Drawing on examples from Europe and the Americas, we ask how literary texts have critiqued or proposed alternatives to dominant or emerging media practices. We also pursue new insights by comparing across the national boundaries and time periods that often frame conversations about literature and media change.
