Electronic Literature Collection: Volume 4

10/06/2022

Foi lançado em junho de 2022, o Volume 4 da Electronic Literature Collection, organizado por Kathi Inman Berens, John T. Murray, Lyle Skains, Rui Torres e Mia Zamora. Produzida pela Electronic Literature Organization, a antologia inclui 132 obras de 42 países em 31 línguas, e foi programaticamente concebida para apresentar um amplo conjunto de práticas criativas de escrita digital. Os volumes anteriores continuam acessíveis: Volume 1 (ELO, 2006), Volume 2 (ELO, 2011) e Volume 3 (ELO, 2016). Excerto da nota editorial de apresentação do Volume 4:

Centering Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

ELC4 presents the largest and most diverse group yet of elit authors writing in Afrikaans, Ancient Chinese, Arabic, Catalan, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, isiXhosa, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mezangelle, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Setswana, Simplified Chinese, Slovak, South African Sign Language, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Yoruba.

ELC4 is the first ELC offering access to some commercial works, such as VR experiences playable even without headsets, and narrative video games. These join the Collection’s far more numerous open access works: database fictions, autoethnographies by GenZ makers, works that play cleverly with AI, geospatial storytelling via mobile phones, and many more.

Our goal was to welcome artists who may never have heard of “elit” or encountered it in a classroom. We sought and found works by Indigenous makers from many cultures. We found new-to-elit makers by attending live streamed performances and virtual exhibits from makers in India, Mexico, and West Africa. Elit scholars in Chile, Argentina, and Brazil connected us with media artists in Central and South America. International consultants from Asia, the Middle East, eastern and western Europe, Australia, and Africa helped us find works imbued by their local cultures. International consultants wrote evaluations when we editors didn’t speak the languages.
