In this talk Dr Matt Hayler (University of Birmingham) will explore what an “ambient” literature might be, what it might deploy and be sensitive to, and how it might help us to ask new questions about readers, places of reading and interacting, embodied and extended cognition, and the effects of the materiality of text, particularly in a digital/post-digital age.
Examples of literature (and other artworks) that we might want to describe as “ambient” have existed for a long time, but a few months into an AHRC project focussed on ambient literary works of the now and near future we are thinking again about the politics and practices of ambience and what might make ambient works of particular interest in our current moment.
