3. Course contents
The question of how literature is produced and how it is functioning in a larger, social field already implies an implicit "positive" statement, namely that books - in whatever form they may appear - continue to occupy a key function even in a more « cybercentered» society. Pertinent information about reading habits, the influence of practices like editing, media and search engins like « google » will be taken into consideration. After a presentation trying to understand the transformed appearance of present-day reader and writer, we will investigate the impact of several media, each operating in a particular mode : the world of publishing companies, press and bookreviews, the literary and artistic magazines, the influence of juries and prize-giving, government and subsidy.
