Introduction to Electronic Literature in DH: Research and Practice (DHSI Course 15, 2018)

Abstract (in English): 

Electronic literature is described as born digital literary work––that is, literature produced with and only experienced on a computing device. Exhibits at the MLA, the Library of Congress, UC Berkeley, and Rutgers-Camden, as well as MOOCs (“Electronic Literature”) that drew thousands of participants and courses (“Digital Humanities Electronic Literature,” Winona State U), and symposia (“Digital Cultures in the Age of Big Data,” Bowling Green State University) show a growing interest by digital humanists in Electronic Literature. This course, led by leading scholars and artists of the Electronic Literature Organization, offers DH scholars a formal, in-depth study that provides a good understanding of electronic literature’s antecedents and traditions, authors and works, theories and methodologies, scholarly approaches, and artistic practices. It combines seminar and workshop methodologies so that participants gain the background needed to critique and interpret and teach electronic literature with knowledge of its production. 

This offering is co-sponsored by the Electronic Literature Organization. 

This course combines lecture, seminar, and hands-on activities. Consider this offering to build on: Scholarscapes, Augmented Dissemination via Digital Methods. Consider this offering in complement with and / or to be built on by: Advanced Criticism and Authoring of Electronic Literature; Pragmatic Publishing Workflows; Text Mapping as Modelling; and more.
