ELMCIP Conference Remediating the Social in Edinburgh (Nov 1-3)

October 29, 2012 in ELO, Events

This week Edinburgh College of Art in collaboration with New Media Scotland and University College Falmouth will host the conference “Remediating the Social” (Nov. 1-3) under the ELMCIP framework.  ELMCIP is a partner of ELO in the Consortium for Electronic Literature (CEL) and has become through its Knowledge Base one of the main sources for information on e-lit in Europe (and beyond).

ELMCIP, or Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice, is a three-year collaborative research project that began in June 2010, which focuses on how creative communities of practitioners form with a transnational and transcultural context, with an implicit emphasis on electronic literature.  ELMCIP’s project leader is ELO co-founder Scott Rettberg, who together with seven other partners make up the principle investigative team.  See his conference presentation on ELMCIP here.
