Narr@tive: Digital Storytelling

Narr@tive: Digital Storytelling is a UC Digital Cultures Graduate Conference and Evening of New Media Student Readings that is co-chaired by ELO’s Associate Director Jessica Pressman and will be held at UCLA April 22-23, 2004. This conference questions how digital culture has transformed our practices of reading, writing, and thinking about narrative, in its broadest sense. Topics are to be addressed from a wide variety of disciplinary fields: literature and poetics, copyrights and archiving, e-journals and publication practices, code and linguistics, games and interactive narratives, and scholarship systems and networks.

The final event of the conference will be a reading of electronic literature showcasing student work as part of the HyperText reading series, sponsored by ELO and the UCLA Hammer Museum.
