Todd Taylor: "The Publishing Platform is the Message"

Andrew Morrison: "Melting Reality at the Ends of the Earth: Co-fictioning Arctic Futures"

Cheryl Ball & Andrew Morrison: "Cairn: An Academic Publishing Platform for Scholarly and Creative Multimedia"

As electronic literature resides at the boundaries of the literary, creative, critical, and computational, and blurs into fields such as cinema and media studies, critical theory, art, computer science, rhetoric, and design, the speakers in this session wish to bring these boundaries into conversation and speak to ELO’s call to question the ends of electronic literature. The speakers will focus on digital media production and publication in documentary, narrative, and scholarly multimedia genres, attending to the ways these genres intersect with histories and futures of electronic literature. They will discuss the pedagogical, speculative, and scholarly aims of these creative screen-based texts to push on the ends of non-transdisciplinarity and to engage with boundary crossings between ELO into the speakers’ respective fields of rhetoric and composition studies, interaction design, and publishing studies. Our aim will be to showcase how specific screen-based genres within these disciplines are published in traditional and nontraditional outlets. This collection of talks will provoke the question of what counts as publishing beyond the ends of electronic literature and related media-filled and screen-based texts.

Working in multimodal composition, from writing studies to design fiction, I look into the tangles of theory and... Read More →

My research and teaching explores how literacy continues to evolve in response to emerging digital technologies. More specifically, I am interested in mainstream access to multimedia authoring tools, particularly personal filmmaking and broadcasting technologies.
