HTLit at Eastgate

Mark Bernstein says:
"We hope this site will create a community in which hypertext
creators, scholars, and critics can share new hypertext works,
research, and teaching methods. We'll follow technological trends,
emerging artists, and issues involving publishing, writing, and
digital media.

HTLit takes a broad view of hypertext, and will cover all electronic
literature and narrative new media as well as game theory, nonfiction
hypertexts, electronic poetry, and inventive real-world applications
of hypertext. We seek inspiration wherever we can."

reflections for a new semester

had a great summer semester teaching English 200 to some great students. and now, look, it is fall already and I haven't updated this blog since March! So in between moving and teaching I've been working on the elevator book (still working on...). Now I'm looking forward to a semester of teaching hypertext, taking art history, and writing my dissertation prospectus. oh and my second comp. exam... there's that. I'm determined to remain calm and zen-like through the whole thing. wish me luck. :)

writing is DJing...

I really enjoyed Rhythm Science and thought this looked interesting (relevant for some of us, perhaps spring break pleasure reading for others...):

Paul Miller's (aka DJ Spooky) Sound Unbound: Sampling Digital Music and Culture

An edited collection. Mostly audio stuff, but applicable to other kinds of electronic media of course.

"Paul Miller is one of the best cultural radars in the world today. He always picks out the most relevant people working today and reveals previously unseen connections. If you want situational awareness about the world of sound, music, performance, computers, and ideas, read this book." —Lev Manovich

new year new course

new course as in teaching. postmodern literature with a focus on materiality and structure. while constructing the syllabus I came upon some interesting ideas on mapping lit. here is one.

Stefanie Posavec "On the Map"

(this is fun too, although not related: literature map)

now any brilliant ideas on discussion or assignment structuring for 37 students would be most welcome. :)
