About this website
This website is the result of a specific need. A need to group various experiences revolving around literature and literary practices in relation to "other media".
This website arises in the first place to keep track of (past and present) academic research and educational projects. On the other hand, this website wants to offer a platform to like-minded people to share experiences and generate new ideas, which in turn lead to new experiments, collaborations and projects.
With the plurality of digital work forms, ever-increasing possibilities of output and communication arise.
The possibilities seem endless. And at first it is quite exciting to work with different tools to generate innovative output. Nonetheless, a number of questions arise as well: what are the costs for storage and hosting of websites, databases and utilities? do we have sufficient know-how about certain tools and programs? What about copyright and GDPR?
All of these questions seem to make it difficult to digitize research and educational projects.
