As technology continues to reconfigure our relationship with narrative, literature, art, and our real and virtual selves, panelists discuss ways in which innovative thinkers are proposing new strategies of aesthetic engagement with narrative, and suggesting future possibilities that are likely to revolutionize the concept of "literature."
