Space as Protest:
Literary Experimentations in Digitally-Generated Environments
New media technological developments have signaled a major shift in the way we perceive and experience physical, digital and narrative space. Electronically-generated and mixed- reality environments can function as spaces for protest against socio-cultural and literary conventions within the context of contemporary American literary production. Calling attention to different media and genres, including print and electronic literature, RPG games, and locative media, the present panel intends to explore the diverse ways in which the concepts of space and place are reconfigured in contemporary American literary texts as well as the ways in which the relationship between virtual and physical environments is redefined as a result of the convergence of electronic media and literary practice.
We are looking for a third panelist to participate in the proposed panel proposal. We welcome proposals for 20-minute papers relating but not limited to:
locative and mobile media
media and environment
If you are interested, please send a 250-word abstract and short bio to Vassilis Delioglanis (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Evgenia Kleidona (email@example.com) by 25th September 2017.
