Workshop Logo

This workshop considered the ways in which readers respond to literature as a result of the way in which it is produced and presented to them. The session asked students to analyse the ‘packaging’ of a book as fundamental to its meaning and interpretation.  A selection of Harry Potter books was used, e.g. Harry Potter: the children’s and adult covers as well as foreign covers.  The final part of the session asked students to consider the shift from print to digitisation and the impact of e-readers (e.g. Amazon’s kindle).
