Reading Writing Interfaces: Electronic Literature and the “Interface-free”
2012 Modern Language Association Conference in Seattle (Jan. 5-8)
Send 300 word abstracts and a brief bio. by 15 March 2011 to Lori Emerson (lori dot emerson at colorado dot edu)

Given that, as Lisa Gitelman puts it, “media represent and delimit representing,” this special session seeks papers on how electronic literature creates, responds to, or reworks reading/writing interfaces; papers may also explore the relationship between electronic literature and the recent turn to the “interface-free.”
