James O’Sullivan: "Electronic Literature: A Publisher’s Perspective"

This panel focuses on the production and criticism of electronic poetry in the Irish context. The participants in this panel represent both practitioners and scholars of electronic poetry and poetics in, and from, Ireland. While critics have frequently commented on the relatively conservative poetic culture in Ireland, the various contexts of the production, reception and criticism of poetry disseminated via new media technologies in Ireland remain patchily explored. The emergence of a body of poetry disseminated in electronic formats also raises questions that go beyond questions of “Irishness” and relate to the wider topic of electronic poetry as a form of cultural production. What is the role of national culture in the emergence of electronic/digital literature, and how does this relate to its irreverence of geographical and cultural boundaries? What constitutes poetry, and what is read as poetry, in the multimodal contexts enabled by the emergence of new media? What is the role of the publishing industry and literary scholarship in the emergence, reception and evaluation of electronic poetry? How does poetry that makes use of new media relate to the existing poetic tradition, on and off the page? And finally, is the end (or purpose) of electronic or digital poetry to seek ends of other kinds, as it challenges the existing institutions and canons of (Irish) poetic culture?
