Inspired by narratologist Gérard Genette’s seminal work Paratexts: Thresholds of Interpretation, the paratext framework is now used in many fields in order to assess, measure, and understand the elements that provide the thresholds allowing us to “step inside” digital objects. This book seeks to revisit Genette’s seminal theory for the digital age through a collaborative outlook and an interdisciplinary perspective.
The goal of this book is to help scholars from various fields find an interdisciplinary framework and common language with which to study digital objects.
This book is aimed at scholars, students, and professionals working in the following fields:
Library and Information Science
