Stuart Moulthrop: "Electronic Literature and the Public Literary"

Rob Wittig: "We Interrupt For This Breaking Story"

Patricia Tomaszek "Publishing without a Publisher’s Peritext: Electronic Literature, the Web, and Paratextual Integrity"


Practices of public and performative electronic writing connect our arts movement to important sites of social transformation, beginning with the resistance to neoliberalism in government and the academy, and potentially touching larger questions about relations of mass and elite culture.

This panel comprises three papers, two by creator/conveners of participatory projects, the third by an interested theorist. The creators offer reflections on the meaning of participatory engagement based on their own experiences with the form. The theory paper adds some more abstract reflections addressing questions of general concern to electronic literature as a cultural movement.
