[…] At the ELO’s “Future of Electronic Literature” conference at the University of Maryland, we held a panel on international (non-English) works. To facilitate that discussion, the members of that panel developed a wiki, which is now available here at WRT. […]]]>

[…] At the recent Electronic Literature Organization event, “The Future of Electronic Literature,” I asked the audience if they had heard of a talented artist of electronic literature from Colombia named Jaime Alejandro Rodríguez Ruiz. Previously, WRT featured his Golpe de Gracia as well as Gabriella Infinita. Author of El Relato Digital, Rodríguez Ruiz, who teaches at the University of Javeriana in Bogotá, Now we can hear from the man himself in his own words. […]]]>
Thank you for the response. It sounds as if the conference will live up to its title and speak to the future of ELO and by extension a particular branch of elit.
Let us know more about Vol 2. especially for our writerly readers who would like to submit.
Congratulations on your recent tenure, by the way. Well deserved! Well won!]]>
Mark is too modest to mention he played a key role in helping organize the international panel, putting us in touch with several of the participants . . .
Mark, nice post. Couple of quick clarifications: “The Future of Electronic Literature” was originally only a place-holder title, but as sometimes happens the name stuck. We don’t imagine for a moment we can seriously cover the entirety of the field’s future(s) in a single day of discussion. Regarding future conferences though, I believe they’ll be some exciting news at the symposium. I can tell you you’ll have a shorter distance to go.
Preservation is still an important part of what ELO does, especially since it’s a particular interest of mine and others at MITH. We also expect to have news to announce on several of those fronts at the symposium. But it’s not the sum total of ELO. At the end of the day, ELO is a facilitator, a vehicle, for what individuals (and collectives) want to work on. The best recent example of this is undoubtedly the Electronic Literature Collection, Vol. 1 (which to me is an project that combines perspectives on the past with a path to the future), and plans are actively underway for Vol 2.
See you in a few weeks!]]>
