Lost in Hyperspace
- Extra Reading
Hypertext applications are everywhere but few people have discussed their effects. In the literary world, hypertexts are seductive because they promise to loosen up the entrenched conventions of print, even being described as three-dimensional books. This lecture offers suggestions for ways that we might begin to think of aesthetic value for hypertext literacy/orality.
(Morning, Susan Johanknecht, Victorian Periodicals Project, William Gibson, demonstration of hypertext flexibility).
