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.”
