The I ♥ E-Poetry editorial team consists of an Editor, Bárbara Bordalejo, and the Publisher, Leonardo Flores.
I ♥ E-Poetry is recruiting!
We are seeking regular and guest contributors to continue with our mission of developing a current, scholarly, and approachable guide to electronic literature, one that can transcend beyond academic circles to more general audiences. I ♥ E-Poetry is seeks to explore the poetics of language wherever it is deployed in digital media, particularly when it engages its media in artistic and literary ways.
With that in mind, we wish to recruit artists, students, and scholars of electronic/digital media interested in exploring the following areas:
As the third year of the I ♥ E-Poetry project draws to a close, I’d like to offer some numerical data, reports on our activities, future plans, and acknowledgements– a tradition I started last year. This reader-friendly report should have special appeal to those who would like to know more about the community of readers they belong to and how the project is developing.
As I ♥ E-Poetry continues to develop as a collaborative resource, it is important to recognize those who work behind the scenes to keep this site current. This semester, I had 6 UPRM students enrolled in my Digital Humanities Internship course who brought I ♥ E-Poetry to Pinterest, redesigned the blog using the GeneratePress theme, and have written entries, which will be published this week. Who are these remarkable interns who have cared for I ♥ E-Poetry’s health? Here’s an alphabetical listing:
We are currently redesigning I ♥ E-Poetry, so please be patient with any irregularities in its look and feel over the next few days.
Leonardo Flores, PhD
If you have been reading my daily entries on bots, and have explored the resource that compiles them, you may have noticed the great variety, sophistication, and artistry that characterizes this emergent genre. With these daily postings, I have tried to take a snapshot of a vibrant moment for this artistic and literary practice, knowing all along that it is growing too quickly to fully capture.
I ♥ E-Poetry welcomes its newest guest contributor: Matt Schneider.
Matt Schneider is a PhD candidate at the University of Toronto, where he studies digital materiality and print culture in his dissertation, RARchive Fever: The Materiality of Videogames. He has also amassed a small herd of Twitter Bots, including @MassageMcLuhan, @SketchCharacter, and @AlliterativAuto.
We are thrilled to be joined by this talented young scholar and botteur, whose expertise in videogames, bots, and coding will enrich our growing collection!
This Spring 2014 semester, I had the pleasure of working with a group of 5 interns enrolled in my Digital Humanities Internship course, and Ian Rolón, a volunteer from the Fall 2013 semester. Together, they worked on activities such as:
- Developing Web presence for La Feria Internacional del Libro.
- Developing posters, resources, presentations, and outreach activities for I ♥ E-Poetry at the Feria Internacional del Libro.
- Helping organize and host the E-Poetry 2014 Intensive.
- Developing an A to Z by Title Index for I ♥ E-Poetry.
- Fine-tuning all I ♥ E-Poetry entries to follow the same template.
- Developing resource pages and linking entries back to them.
- Writing descriptive alt-text tags for all images at I ♥ E-Poetry to meet W3C Accessibility standards.
- Writing new I ♥ E-Poetry entries, which will be posted all of next week.
Here’s a brief profile for each intern for this semester, in alphabetical order:
