This month we bring two insightful reviews: Sarah Whitcomb Laiola discusses Stephanie Strickland’s wonderfully intricate new poetic book Ringing the Changes (Counterpath Press, 2020) and Stuart Moulthrop follows Noah Wardrip-Fruin in his effort to urge game studies into a new direction (How Pac-Man East, MIT Press, 2020).
Next Sunday, on November 8, three new [Frame]works Gathering essays will be published: “Documenting a Field: The Life and Afterlife of the ELMCIP Collaborative Research Project and Electronic Literature Knowledge Base” by Scott Rettberg, “Speculative Interfaces: How Electronic Literature Uses Interface to Make Us Think About Technology” by Jill Walker Rettberg, and “Networked Narratives and a Pedagogy of Play” by Mia Zamora. “Electronic Literature [Frame]works for the Creative Digital Humanities,” edited by Scott Rettberg and Alex Saum-Pascual, gathers a selection of articles exploring the evolving relationship between electronic literature and the digital humanities in Europe, North and South America. The collection was originally presented at the Summer 2019 [Frame]works conference at UC Berkeley.
This exciting gathering will continue in every issue of ebr until December 2020. See the planned publication schedule.
