Short description: 

Welcome to the official home page of Other Codes / Cóid Eile –  Digital Literatures in Context. This two-day event is the first Galway Digital Cultures Initiative conference, and will take place at the National University of Ireland, Galway, 11-12 May 2017. The conference is hosted by the Moore Institute for Research in the Humanities and Social Studies.

The event focuses on the various contexts for the production, dissemination and reception of digital literature in its different forms, as well as the cultural, national, geographical and institutional settings within which digital literary practice takes place. How do the transnational, technological and aesthetic aspects of digital literature manifest themselves in specific works, at particular historical moments? How do global networks adapt to local circumstances? How do new and experimental forms of literary and artistic expression challenge or accommodate national traditions and canons? What is the relationship between individual talents, literary communities and institutional frameworks in the new media environments of the twenty-first century?

The conference is funded by the Irish Research Council and the European Commission via Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.
