The E-Lit Critical Making Group (Working Group)

JOIN US THIS FALL (as in, NOW) at >>>

The E-Lit Critical Making Group

In preparation for the spring exhibit, No Legacy || Literatura electrónica, this fall we will gather to explore tools for electronic literature and use them for creative work. We will play with tools such as Twine, Inform 7, Undum, Flash, generative grammars, and bots. Participants will receive an applied, rudimentary introduction to programming. Using the Python Natural Language Tool Kit, we will learn how computers read poetry and how they write poetry. We will gather at the end of the semester to share work in a digital salon. If you are interested, please fill out this form and indicate your availability. No experience with programming or digital tools is required, but interest in the subject matter is key.
