Present and future of literature on the web

In a transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary way, which falls within the vast field of digital humanities and provides the means to create an international network of academic discussion on nanofictional literary forms from different areas of knowledge (Theory of Literature and Comparative Literature, Critical Literature, History of Literature, Communication, Innovation and Technologies, etc.), we intend to investigate in the new ways of formalization of the diverse manifestation of brevity in the digital sphere, to study the semiological relations that are established between the literary text and other manifestations (photography, painting, cinema, audiovisual animation, etc.) and pay attention to the question of generic boundaries.
