ELO is pleased to announce a collaboration with N. Katherine Hayles on “Teaching Electronic Literature,” a resource for teachers featuring useful links to curated collections of works, selected scholarly resources, and sample syllabi and course materials from leading scholars and teachers in the field. The website is a companion to Dr. Hayles’ MLA presentation “Why Teach Electronic Literature” at 3:30 on January 11, 2020.
With this project, Dr. Hayles shares knowledge and experience accumulated since becoming active in the field of electronic literature in 1995, when she directed the first of three NEH Summer Seminars on the topic. Since then, she has remained a leading voice in the study of electronic literature, producing the first systematic survey of the field, Electronic Literature: New Horizons for the Literary. In addition, Dr. Hayles has served as ELO’s President and is the namesake of our annual award for scholarship on digital literature. Her goal in creating “Teaching Electronic Literature” is to make the transition into electronic literature easier for anyone who wants to teach these works.
Assisting in the creation and maintenance of the website is Ryan House, currently a doctoral student in Media, Film, and Digital Studies at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. Ryan has been a member of ELO since 2016. If you would like to contribute to this resource, please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please share widely!
