At the annual conference held in Bergen, Norway in August 2015, ELO explored “the end(s) of electronic literature,” construed broadly as the contours, edges, and boundaries of the field and practice. This year the ELO 2016 Conference & Media Art Festival asks now, What’s next? What investigations, interventions, and creations lie beyond the horizons of born digital writing?
“Next Horizons,” the ELO 2016 Conference & Media Art Festival, looks to answer these questions with the intentional connection, integration, and expansion of electronic literature into the Digital Humanities through a partnership between the Electronic Literature Organization and the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI). ELO 2016 takes place at the University of Victoria, in Victoria, B.C. where over 750 scholars convene each year at DHSI to learn and expand their knowledge of DH tools, methods, and criticism. Taking place from 10-12 June and co-chaired by Drs. Dene Grigar and Ray Siemens, ELO 2016 will feature critical papers and artistic works of electronic literature. Additionally, because collocating the conference and art festival within DHSI presents the unique opportunity for collaborations between the two communities that may result in new knowledge about electronic literature and DH, it also offers opportunities––new formats and approaches to the conference––that take advantage of this affordance.
Opportunities for Participation
ELO 2016 emphasizes both scholarship and creative activities. All events will be peer-reviewed and juried by scholars and artists with expertise in the specific area reflected in the topic or method. Comments will be sent to all who submit a proposal or work. For more information, contact Dene Grigar, President, ELO, firstname.lastname@example.org.
