talks this week on electronic literature
Yesterday Scott Rettberg spoke to our webdesign and web aesthetics students yesterday about electronic literature. Here’s a photo and links to the works he discussed. I was particularly happy about how wonderfully the students participated in the discussion, even in English. We have great students! Scott will be returning to Bergen in May, and will work with the web design and web aesthetics students on close readings of websites. This autumn semester he’ll be in charge of the Digital Media Aesthetics course, which is a combined upper level undergraduate and MA level course. It will be great having him at our department.
Tomorrow Talan Memmott, who’s in Sweden this semester, will be speaking about Digital Authorhip: Writing Through New Media. And Bergen Student-TV asked about coming to video it and interview him, isn’t that great? I’ve never “met” the Student-TV people before, but as a very enthusiastic ex-member of the Student Radio I think it’s going to be way cool. They don’t seem to do video casts yet, which is a pity since I have that shiny new video ipod, but they do put their shows on the web. I’ll let you know if Talan shows up there.
