Proposed Special Session for the 2006 MLA Convention in Philadelphia,
December 27-30, 2006

*Performing Space: /Placing/ 21st C Digital Literature.* This proposed
panel invites address/presentation/papers exploring issues of content,
form, genre, periodization, and boundary relative to the /place/ of
electronic textualities - location, performance, positioning,
contribution, and/or valuation: new media literature, hypertext, works
"born-digital," and interactive narratives. Contributors are
welcome/encouraged to prepare their work with a presumption of liberty
in presentation that contextualizes/actualizes the
confrontation/resistance often experienced in first engagements with new
media literature. 500-word abstracts and brief CVs by 10 March to Mary
