Electronic Literature and Future Books (MIT Communications Forum)
Held May 4, 2012 at MIT.
Mainstream and avant-garde poets and fiction writers have been exploring the literary potential of the computer for decades, creating work that goes far beyond today's e-books. The creators of electronic literature have developed new interface methods, new techniques for collaboration, and new ways of linking language, computing, and other media elements. How has electronic literature influenced other media, including the Web and the book? What are the implications of having literary projects in the digital sphere alongside other forms of communication and art?
This forum concludes a day-long symposium on the future of the book. Register at futurebook.mit.edu.
