The Berkeley Center for New Media was proud to support the stunning Books in Browsers VII! Held at Gray Area in San Francisco, produced and sponsored by UC Davis and the Frankfurt Book Fair, with financial support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the conference brought together publishers, technologists, and artists, working at the forefront of the new digital publishing world.
This year, Books in Browsers moved beyond long narratives to examine how images and videos, alongside text, are being adopted to form new narratives, instructional materials, and scholarship. Charting the birth of visual platforms, new stories are emerging in a diverse media world. This shift is reframing how we engage and how we learn.
We were also thrilled to see BCNM alum Kris Fallon presented on behalf of UC Davis, as well as BCNM Regents lecturer Brewster Kahle from the Internet Archive!
