TL;DR: In this paper, a lecture des oeuvres litteraires numeriques and strategies permettant de depasser les impasses argumentative liees aux caracteres numerique and interactif des ouvres are presented.
Abstract: Le present article s’interesse a la lecture des oeuvres litteraires numeriques et a des strategies permettant de depasser les impasses argumentatives liees aux caracteres numerique et interactif des oeuvres. Le depassement d’une approche superficielle et immanente pourrait passer par l’etude de la materialite des oeuvres, de leur dimension manipulatoire, ainsi que de leur manifestation (leur performance). En prenant en compte la dynamique propre aux dispositifs abordes et celle de la lecture active qu’ils commandent, ces trois elements permettent a la fois une meilleure comprehension du fonctionnement des oeuvres et l’identification de strategies de lecture adaptees aux textes litteraires numeriques.

TL;DR: In "Hamlet on the Holodeck" as discussed by the authors, a world in which Homer's "Iyre" and Gutenberg's printing press have given way to virtual reality environments like the "Star Trek" ® holodeck, Murray analyzes the state of "immersion" of participating in a text to such an extent that you literally get lost in a story and obliterate the outside world from your awareness.
Abstract: Stories define how we think, the way we play, and the way we understand our lives. And just as Gutenberg made possible the stories that ushered in the Modem Era, so is the computer having a profound effect on the stories of the late 20th century. Today we are confronting the limits of books themselves -- anticipating the end of storytelling as we know it -- even as we witness the advent of a brave new world of cyberdramas. Computer technology of the late twentieth century is astonishing, thrilling, and strange, and no one is better qualified than Janet Murray to offer a breathtaking tour of how it is reshaping the stories we live by. Can we imagine a world in which Homer's "Iyre" and Gutenberg's press have given way to virtual reality environments like the "Star Trek" ® holodeck? Murray sees the harbingers of such a world in the fiction of Borges and Calvino, movies like "Groundhog Day," and the videogames and Web sites of the 1990s. Where is our map for this new frontier, and what can we hope to find in it? What will it be like to step into our own stories for the first time, to change our vantage point at will, to construct our own worlds or change the outcome of a compelling adventure, be it a murder mystery or a torrid romance? Taking up where Marshall McLuhan left off, Murray offers profound and provocative answers to these and other questions. She discusses the unique properties and pleasures of digital environments and connects them with the traditional satisfactions of narrative. She analyzes the state of "immersion, " of participating in a text to such an extent that you literally get lost in a story and obliterate the outside world from your awareness. Shedissects the titillating effect of cyber-narratives in which stories never climax and never end, because everything is morphable, and there are always infinite possibilities for the next scene. And she introduces us to enchanted landscapes populated by witty automated characters and inventive role-playing interactors, who together make up a new kind of "commedia dell'arte." Equal parts daydream and how-to, "Hamlet on the Holodeck" is a brilliant blend of imagination and techno-wizardry that will provoke readers and guide writers for years to come.

TL;DR: The Department of Performance Studies integrates artistic and analytical approaches to a wide range of performance texts, events, and processes as mentioned in this paper, and courses explore an interdisciplinary range of literary, cultural, and personal texts in performance.
Abstract: The Department of Performance Studies integrates artistic and analytical approaches to a wide range of performance texts, events, and processes. The courses explore an interdisciplinary range of literary, cultural, and personal texts in performance. The department has particular strengths in the study of literature through solo performance; the ensemble adaptation and staging of poetic, narrative, and nonfictional texts; intercultural performance; performance art; cultural studies and the ethnography of performance; and performance theory and criticism. Internships and field study for performance studies majors extend and deepen their classroom work with experiential learning. Extracurricular work provides students with a variety of opportunities to perform, adapt, and direct, enabling their creative work to reach an audience outside the classroom.

TL;DR: For instance, the authors suggests that new contemporary technologies are changing the very notion of what it means to read, and even millennials acknowledge that their attention is more focused when they read print rather than online.
Abstract: The many advantages of reading digitally also bring with them implications for how we learn differently when we read differently. The author suggests that new contemporary technologies are changing the very notion of what it means to read. Even millennials acknowledge that their attention is more focused when they read print rather than online. But they also perceive print as boring. If print is increasingly seen as more boring than digital text, will our ability to read print generally diminish? Since online technology is tailor-made for searching for information rather than analyzing complex ideas, might the meaning of “reading” become finding information rather than contemplating and understanding?
