  3. Afsnit P

    Afsnit P is a Danish site for visual literature and intermedia art that has been active since 1999 (until 2011). The Danish word afsnit means section or paragraph, and the p stands for poetry, referring to both poesis and pictura according to its three editors, Christian Yde Frostholm, Karen Wagner, and Charlotte Hansen. Afsnit P is described as a cross between a virtual gallery and journal. It contains a blog, which features information about exhibitions, events, recent publications, and a virtual gallery which showcases creative work. In addition, several essays about visual and digital poetry and art have been published on the site. There is also an extensive link library. While there is a natural emphasis on Nordic artists and events, the content is international and the site functions as a portal for Nordic audiences to experimental, visual writing as an international phenomenon. Afsnit P is mainly in Danish with a smaller English section.

  4. A Four-Sided Model for Reading Hypertext Fiction

    I will not pursue the issue of a hypertextual competence (or a multimodal hypertextual competence) here. Rather I would like to take a closer look at literary hypertext and electronic literature itself, and the fact that electronic literature, just like print literature, prefigures different modes of reading. I will insist on the necessity of examining what mode of reading and what kind of responses are prefigured in hypertexts when we make conclusions about hypertext reading. I want to approach the topic by putting weight on how Megan Heyward’s Of day, of night (2002) prefigures the reader's response. The aim of this article is to explore some of the preconditions for reading Of day, of night, and to identify three modes of reading in this hypertext fiction. In addition to these three modes I will argue for a fourth mode of reading hypertext fiction. This mode can be identified in several literary hypertexts, but is less relevant for describing the preconditions for reading Heyward's text. Consequently I will make use of other work to exemplify this mode. Four modes of reading are identified and described. These are semantization, exploration, self-reflection and absorption.

  5. Hyperrhiz: New Media Cultures

    In close affiliation with Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge, a parent journal of Hyperrhiz, this site hosts experimental web-based projects. Hyperrhiz also provides a forum for the presentation of electronic installations, games, and performances through the use of archival video, photo, and text documentation. It is a peer-reviewed online journal of net art and electronic literature that is published twice yearly. The editor's interest lies "in the genres of electronic discourse, and how these formats might affect the expression of complex discourses within new media." Hyperrhiz welcomes submissions of net-ready art projects, electronic literature works, and review essays. As the journal's name suggests, works written in the spirit of Deleuzian approaches are welcomed but not required.

  6. Hermeneia Grup de Recerca

    With financial support obtained from earning a research award from the department of Innovation, Universities and Enterprise by the Generalitat de Catalunya and with help of other grants from several research institutions, in 2000, Laura Borràs Castanyer initiated HERMENEIA along with a research group that determines the contents published on HERMENEIA´s web presence. For a decade, Borràs founding group of editors including Joan-Elies Adell, Raffaele Pinto, Giovanna di Rosario, Perla Sassón-Henry, Raine Koskimaa, Markku Eskelinen, and Juan Gutiérrez, worked together in cooperation with researchers from American and European universites (e.g. Brown University, USA and the University of Jyväskylä in Finland), to offer an international gaze of the digital literature phenomenon“ on a freely accessible web site. While over the years the infrastructure of the group and its members changed, the objective remained obviously the same: the group investigates in literary studies, electronic literature, and digital technologies. Electronic literature challenges not only the readers perception, but also literary theory and teaching.

  10. Beyond the Screen: Transformations of Literary Structures, Interfaces and Genres

    While literature in computer-based and networked media has so far been experienced by looking at the computer screen and by using keyboard and mouse, nowadays human-machine interactions are organized by considerably more complex interfaces. Consequently, this book focuses on literary processes in interactive installations, locative narratives and immersive environments, in which active engagement and bodily interaction is required from the reader to perceive the literary text. The contributions from internationally renowned scholars analyze how literary structures, interfaces and genres change, and how transitory aesthetic experiences can be documented, archived and edited.
