***CFP DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JAN 14th, 2019***
Proposals are now being accepted for presentations and exhibition
pieces at the annual Electronic Literature Organization Conference and
Media Arts Festival, to be held July 15-17, 2019 at University College
Cork, Ireland. Electronic literature, or e-lit, refers to literary works
wherein computation forms some essential part of the aesthetic. #ELO19
offers an opportunity to share research and creative contributions
within an engaging, collegial atmosphere comprising e-lit scholars and
practitioners from across the globe.
The theme for this year’s ELO gathering is “peripheries”: delegates
are invited to explore the edges of literary and digital culture,
including emerging traditions, indeterminate structures and processes,
fringe communities of praxis, effaced forms and genres, marginalised
bodies, and perceptual failings.
#ELO19 will mark the first time that the ELO conference has been
hosted by an Irish institution: join us for this momentous gathering!
