Call for papers for the next issue of Digital Age in Semiotics & Communication

The advent of the internet and digital technologies in general has wrought deep changes to the socio-cultural tissue in almost every part of the world. Predigital cultural works and phenomena live a new digital life, remediated in interactive form. The media and entertainment industries have transformed successful narratives, characters and entire fictional worlds from the past into lucrative franchises for serial production of FX movies, TV series on demand, videogames, reality shows and home robots. AI generated narratives, based on classical fairytale structures populate the web; Gen Z translators published the first classical novels in SMS writing style while professional old school translators are striving at updating the wording of the old characters with internet slang.
