novas práticas literárias, ambiente digital, Índia, práticas literárias antigas


Neste ensaio, localizamos e exploramos novas práticas e expressões literárias em espaços digitais indianos, tais como romances em SMS e narrativas nos média sociais: poesia, ficção-flash, ficção-twitter que não são considerados literatura eletrónica na Índia. A integração de tecnologia e criatividade não é um fenómeno novo na literatura indiana, onde se pode encontrar uma tradição narrativa da literatura indiana antiga que inclui palavra, pintura e música, por exemplo, Pattachitra, pinturas de Ragamala e Chitra Kavi. Da mesma forma, as novas práticas e expressões literárias no ambiente digital incluem artefactos literários como interfaces, imagens, áudio e vídeo. Estas obras servem como porta de entrada para a literatura eletrónica na Índia.
