Canada Research Chair in Digital Textualities

Logo Chaire Marcello Vitali-Rosati

We are now living in a digital world where everything is writing and textualities. We derive our identity from writing – profiles, data entered into the databases, lines of code -, every one of our actions is based in some way upon writing – from clicking to buying a book or planning a trip -, the objects surrounding us are the result of a writing process. The Canada Research Chair in Digital Textualities brings a new interpretation and insight to the writing that has become part of our world. This site provides information about all the projects carried out by the Chair, member publications and the theoretical concepts used in research.
