Welcome! This website presents our study of the reactions to new media in relation to the book, reading and literature. You will find information about how people reacted to the arrival of radio and television in the 20th century and to digital media nowadays. The conclusion includes a comparison of reactions to the three media and a tentative prediction for the future of the book based on this comparison. In addition, the page about digital media contains a link to the film we made: a compilation of the conference “Book Presence in a Digital Age” (May 2012).
