Universitat Obertat de Catalunya (UOC)
May 24-27, 2009
E-Poetry is both a conference and a festival on digital poetry. The festival is the most significant digital literary gathering in the field. Authors and researchers worldwide meet and present their researches and works. This will permit researchers to present their latest research and artists to premier their newest works. A selection of the papers will be published after the conference following the peer review system and we will also like to publish proceedings of the conference.
Artistic events will take place at key Barcelona venues such as the Barcelona Center for Contemporary Culture (CCCB), providing authors the opportunity to present their works to a public curious about new poetry and artistic trends employing technology and communication during the Setmana de la Poesia, that is also sharing a part of our artistic program.
Katherine Hayles (Duke), Roberto Simanowski (Brown University) and Jean Clément (Université Paris 8) have already accepted to be key-note speakers.
The UOC’s research group Hermeneia with the collaboration of Electronic Poetry Center (University of Buffalo) and the Laboratoire Paragraph (Univ. Paris VIII) will organize the event.
Papers and works for the Conference & the Festival are currently being accepted. Deadline December 1, 2008.
