Comeza en París o congreso e festival de literatura electrónica ‘Chercher le Texte’

Chercher le texteA capital francesa acolle esta semana o novo encontro da Electronic Literature Organization (ELO), que co título Chercher le Texte reunirá expertos e creadores de literautra dixital de todo o mundo en torno a un festival, unha exposición e un congreso.

O título do congreso é “Chercher le Texte: Locating the Text in Electronic Literature”, e parte da premisa de que a literatura electrónica é definida explicitamente como literatura, e aínda así hai unha gran confusión sobre o concepto de texto que opera nela. Por iso cabe preguntarse que define a textualidade de xogos, obras visuais ou obras con ningunha linguaxe evidente, e do que se trata é de “buscar o texto” para definir a literaridade da literatura electrónica.  Así o formulaban na chamada científica:

“Over the past two decades, while numerous creative and critical movements have taken hold within and without academia, creators have been newly conceiving, and scholars resituating, literary works in new media. Early warnings that we might all get “lost in hyperspace” were overcome fairly easily – perhaps too easily when one considers that our first, most challenging conceptions of electronic writing have never quite been realized. Is there a way to mark the multiplicity of new writing in new media? Can commonalities and distinctions among emerging literary practices be noted? Are there new possibilities for language-based forms in programmable media? Can scholarly discussions surrounding works be carried on over time and among various groups, in the media where the works are generated?

ELO 2013 seeks to open the discussion beyond the remediation of literary writing from print to screens, by looking at ways that literary works, and “literariness” generally, circulates through a world system that has itself altered dramatically in the years since the first works of e-lit were produced. New media, from this perspective, are just the most visible instance of emerging economic, social systems, remediations, and subjectivities that impact literary production (as they impact our lives) from every side. New media are now being described, and re-imagined, in terms of new materialisms; discourse networks find new and different alignments within and without institutions, and both human agency and authorial presence have taken on new and sometimes strange forms.”

Nesta parte académica participan expertos como Philippe Bootz, Douglas Duteil, Alexandra Saemmer, Agnieszka Przybyszewska, Elodie Bertrand ou Jean-Philippe Humblot, do ámbito francófono, canda outros como Nick Monfort, Manuel Portela ou Mark Marino. Pódense ver os títulos de todas as ponencias e autores no programa do congreso. Pola parte hispánica participarán Begoña Regueiro, Miriam Llamas e Amelia Sanz coa ponencia “New literatures for a new imaginary: some hispanic case studies”, Bryan Barrachina (“Bryan Barrachina, “Tierra de Extracción: How Hypermedia Novels could enhance Literary Assessment”) e Laura Borrás e Isaías Herrero à(“Real-Time Digital Poetry Experiments with Xbox Kinect”).

Na web do curso pódese obter máis información pola dinámica e contidos do mesmo, e tamén pola súa filosofía, que se presenta así:

This Erasmus Intensive Program dedicated to digital literature is unique in Europe. You might think that it was limited to a specialized avant-garde field and would only interest a few enthusiasts. Far from it! Digital Literature, for sixty years now, has used and misused the computer, explored its possibilities, and questionned its everyday use. It has developed innovative approaches, and anticipated uses of the computer that are common today, highlighting both the limits and the rich potential of the digital. Creative, of course it continues to propose new possibilities, as a way of subverting the normative practices that the industry is trying to impose. Digital literature exploits the traditional computer as well as mobiles, tablets, social networks, geolocalisation and all the environments that the digital creates. It is is forward-facing. That’s why engaging with this inititiative at the intersection of technology and creativity will be of interest to many disciplines. It will be an asset of particular benefit to tomorrow’s creative professionals, whether they are working in the humanities, in artistic or literary fields, or in computer science. This is why we wanted to make this course available to as many disciplines as possible, in an attempt to gather a group of students with complementary skills.
