Digital Assembly Lecture Series: Loss Pequeño Glazier – “New Media Poetics: Language, Meaning, and Expression in Digital Literary Arts”
Wednesday March 13, 2013
5PM – 7PM “E-Poetry’s Uncanny Edge: A Performance & Lecture” by Loss Pequeño Glazier.
Pugh Hall Room 210
Sponsored by English Department and Digital Assembly
Focused on Loss Pequeño Glazier’s own works – through performance and reflection – with particular attention to “Four Guillemets”, “White Faced Bromeliads”, and “Io Sono At Swoons”, this lecture presents an overview of E-Poetry inspired by multiple generous-souled and enthusiastically buoyant approaches to digital textuality, cultural tonalities, the uncanny energy of words, literary models, and the revelations translation and trans-medial forms offer to the field. There is much to explore in this field vibrating with its immediacy! “E-Poetry’s Uncanny Edge” seeks to spread the word about this new, open terrain in a positive manner and with the shared of light of words, with special attention to mindful modes of engagement and cross cultural models that illuminate the more exhilarating possibilities of the medium!
