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. Â ELMCIP is a partner of ELO in the Consortium for Electronic Literature (CEL) and has become through itsÂ Knowledge BaseÂ 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. Â ELMCIP’s project leader is ELO co-founder Scott Rettberg, who together with seven other partners make up the principle investigative team. Â See his conference presentation on ELMCIP here.
Conference: 01-03 November 2012, Edinburgh College of Art, Edinburgh, UK
Exhibition opening: 1 November, 2012, Inspace, University of Edinburgh, UK
