Receiving | Perceiving English Literature in the Digital Age

Receiving | Perceiving English Literature in the Digital Age is an academic and cultural experimental programme, inherently transdisciplinary, focused on the various multisensory forms of literary interpretation. These various multisensory forms reveal as much about the time and place of the reception as about those of the creation, or more, and the reason is that, according to Rivkin and Ryan (2004), “all knowledge is interpretation, a transfer of meaning from one moment of history into another that always inflects what is known with the categories and assumptions of the later moment” (129). At present, with the digital instruments at our disposal, new radical creative and communicative practices have been emerging that potentiate different types of reception and perception of literary texts. Starting in 2016, the programme has produced until now two major international academic and cultural events – on William Blake (15-17 November 2016) and on Angela Carter (23-25 May 2017) and is currently organising a similar celebration of Jane Austen’s art and life to be held in May 2018.

This programme originated from Digital Humanities, Libraries, Schools, Social Commitment first put together in 2010 by researchers Alcinda Pinheiro de Sousa, Pedro Estácio and Teresa de Ataíde Malafaia. The programme was concerned with the bibliographical and cultural study of the collections in English made up of purchases and donations, both by individuals and institutions, which, since 1878, have been systematically incorporated in the collections of the University of Lisbon Faculty of Humanities Library, successor of and heir to the Curso Superior de Letras Library, founded in 1859 by king D. Pedro V. It included scientific counselling by Emeritus Professor Isobel Armstrong, from the University of London, and collaboration with the British Library in the form of expert advice from Jamie Andrews, Head of English and Drama Department. The results from Digital Humanities, Libraries, Schools, Social Commitment were published in The International Journal of the Book, 2012, 2014 and 2016.
