Examining The Information Systems Of The Electronic Literature Collection

Critical Writing
Record Status: 
Abstract (in English): 

The Electronic Literature Collection proves that e-lit is a multiplicity that cannot be easily categorized. The information systems framework offers one coherent approach that applies to these works beyond the characteristics of any one element: text, image, sound, or interactivity. In this talk, I will demonstrate the ways in which educators and students can apply this framework to pieces as varied as Michael Joyce's "Twelve Blue," Jim Andrews' "Stir Fry Texts," and Maria Mencia's "Birds' Singing Other Birds' Songs." When read as information systems, these works not only reveal new generic differences but also present themselves as models for future works.
