Electronic Literature

Electronic literature is a category of textually driven works encompassing a variety of recent and emerging "born-digital" forms, excluding digitized print literature such as the Dostoyevsky you might read on a Kindle. Can electronic literature be encountered, theorized, and critiqued in much the same way as its predecessors, or do emerging forms require more than a paradigmatic shift in kind? How might the "visuality" of text off of the page expand the boundaries of "literature"? What is the significance or expendability of the author/artist in collaborative, multi-author, interactive, anonymous collective, and text-engine generated literatures?

In historical periods of intense political unrest or in calls for social reformation, the written word has encompassed the energy and fervor of such revolutionary moments. From the political pamphlets distributed during the French Revolution to the Industrial Revolution that marked a monumental shift in the United States and around the world in regards to labor laws and technological advancements, the idea of "progress" and pushing social expectations forward into a new mode of thought has permeated our culture for centuries. However, as scholars sit in the 21st century and contemplate the social reforms of the past, how do we recognize this notion of "progress"?
