New Media’s “Connectionism” and the Change of Paradigm in the Evaluation of Online Literature

(Abstract)

 

Li Yangquan

 

The significance and legitimacy of online literature is that it realizes the connectivity that print culture undermines, mainly in terms of the connection of people, the connection of texts and the connection of media. Chinese online literature cannot be measured only by its market effect, which equates it with traditional popular literature and blurs its connectivity, nor can it be measured only by technical standards, which equates it with Western electronic literature. Compared with the “centripetal” connectivity of Western electronic literature, Chinese online literature has developed a “centrifugal” connectivity. Based on the special characteristics of Chinese online literature, a dynamic evaluation system combining literary and connectivity can be constructed to explore the Chinese discourse of new media literary criticism.
