CFP-PANEL PROPOSAL

 

Digital and Print Spaces:

Towards a Renewal of Literary and Poetic Writing

 

Experimentations with digital media within the area of literary practice have resulted into a broader renewal of contemporary American literature. Pioneering theoretician Katherine Hayles has drawn attention to the relation between digital technology and literary production, and the impact of virtual spaces to the printed page. A plethora of publications of hybrid print and digital works by established American authors such as Stephanie Strickland and Amaranth Borsuk, as well as the three volumes of Electronic Literature Collection witness a digital turn in literary writing. Thus, the intersection of digitality and analog elements has forged paths towards the exploration of new spaces in American literature.

 

This panel aims to examine the ways in which the digital element renews literary and poetic writing within the framework of American literature.

 

I am looking for two panelists to participate in the proposed panel proposal, which is part of the EAAS Digital Studies Network activities. I welcome proposals for 20-minute papers relating but not limited to:

 

  • electronic poetry
  • print and digital hybrid works
  • multimodal narratives
  • new media writing
  • hypertext
  • programming languages and literary writing
  • augmented reality narratives

 

 

 

 

If you are interested, please send a 250 word abstract and short bio to Lizzy Pournara (epournara@enl.auth.gr) by 10th November 2019.
