dec 17, 2012 | Digitale literatuur, Media, Onderzoek

Abstract: The character of authorship, evaluation, canonization and production of artworks is altering in new communication technologies. A mass of amateur and participatory works and reviews is challenging the existing symbolic and economic structure of the field.
