We recently hosted the 11th installment of “Don’t You Have a Map?”, a “collaborative, traveling essay in letters” whose distributed parts are hosted by a different website each month. The writing, like the method, ranges over a wide geography, mapping the landscapes of nature, language, and cyberspace against each other.

(I post this message to strongly encourage all to attend.)

Third Congress of the Observatory for Cybersociety “OPEN KNOWLEDGE. FREE SOCIETY” November 20-December 3.

You will no doubt find one working group to be of particular interest:
C-7 WORKING GROUP C-7: DIGITAL NARRATIVE. LITERATURE AND LITERATURES IN THE DIGITAL SOCIETY. NEW WAYS OF COMMUNICATION. NEW WAYS OF CREATION.

Topics include: new interfaces, new works of electronic literature, electronic criticism of literature, and copyright/copyleft concerns.

I have read the papers and know you will find them and discussions about them insightful. So far 3950 people (and counting) have registered for the Congress. Don’t miss out in this exciting international dialogue as the Congress only meets every two years.

(The languages of the congress are English, Spanish, Catalan, Galician and Portuguese. Everyone can comment in their own language and use translators–machine or human–to follow the conversation. I have had no trouble reading many of these papers translated by BabelFish. Note: Without conversations about digital media across languages and nations, electronic literature will be doomed to redundancy, insularity, and linguistic segregation).

Don’t You Have a Map? is “a collaborative, traveling essay in letters” that tracks a series of poetic exchange between horse less Press editors Jen Tynes and Erika Howsare in their epistolary identities as J and E. The exchange is “traveling” in the sense that each part is hosted by a different website, and […]
