Welcome to ‘Teen Reading in the Digital Era’

Digitization and the introduction of new media platforms, networks, and technologies have radically altered the way in which young readers source, consume and interact with literary and non-literary texts.

Little is known in the Australian context, however, about adolescents’ recreational reading using both traditional print texts, and digital platforms, such as eBooks, or long-form fiction on the Web, such as fan-fiction.

This Deakin University led project aims to generate Australian studies of reading for various purposes in different geographical locations and social environments.

The research aims to generate rich insights into reading preferences, practices and the effects of access and other factors on adolescents’ reading choices, as we look toward 2017 and beyond.
