'Reading in an Age of Change is a collaboration between Meanjin
, two of Australia's finest literary journals, that seeks to drive rather than simply react to this debate. Throughout 2010, editors Sophie Cunningham and Jeff Sparrow will host and publish a series of events and articles that tackle the impact of digital media, shifting intellectual property rights and economic change. Speakers and guests involve some of our foremost thinkers from both Australia and overseas, including McKenzie Wark
, Chris Meade, Cory Doctorow and Kate Eltham
. The project will instigate a broad and varied public conversation on the future of reading, and shed some light on literary culture in years to come.'
