Electronic Literature Exhibit at the MLA 2012 Convention

Going to MLA in January? Consider attending the first ever electronic literature event at the Modern Language Association Convention in Seattle.

From the Electronic Literature Exhibit at the MLA website:

“Electronic Literature” is an exhibit featuring over 100 works by artists who create literary works involving various forms and combinations of digital media, such as video, animation, sound, virtual environments, and multimedia installations, for desktop computers, mobile devices, and live performance. The works presented at this exhibit have been carefully selected by the curators because they represent a cross-section of born digital literary work from countries like Brazil, Canada, Australia, Sweden, the UK, the US, and Spain, and highlight literary art produced from the late 1980s to the present. Thus, the exhibit aims to provide humanities scholars with the opportunity to experience, first-hand, this emergent form of literature, one that we see as an important form of expression in, as Jay David Bolter calls it, this “late age of print.”
