Literature in the first part of the 21st Century continues to undergo a revolution.   Whether playing to the new aesthetic or re-imagining the literary tradition, emerging works are responding to and shaping the changing nature of reading.

The Society for Literature Science and the Arts has been a long-standing center for scholarship on electronic literature.  This year, electronic literature will be showcased in a juried showcase at the 2012 SLSA conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  The event is co-sponsored by the Electronic Literature Organization (http://eliterature.org).

Potential genres include but are not limited to: electronic poetry, interactive narrative, literary video games, netprov,  locative narrative, and literary generators.

Performances are limited to 10 minutes.

Submit 250-300-word description and links to elitSLSA12@gmail.com (Subject: Submission).  Descriptions should emphasize the performative nature of the presentation. Proposals should include the title and a short description of the work (including any links to your material), a plan for presentation, technology requirements, and a short (50 words) bio for each participant. Available technology will be audio, projector, and wifi.

Deadline: Sept. 1, 2012
Note: All participants must register for the SLSA conference and must be in attendance at the reading.  No remote presentations will be accepted.
