DepositPostcolonial Literature (Syllabus)

Colonialism waned in the 1940s through 60s amidst decolonization movements, yet globalization flourished in often unnoticed, hegemonic pathways. Considering cultural products of this moment leads us to ask what happens in the age of globalization that follows after an age of nationalism. When capital migrates, and labour follows, whence culture? What and who are the Others of a global culture? This course will give students the social, cultural, and literary tools to manage the critical paradigms that now shape the discipline. It assumes no familiarity with the critical materials and will build students’ critical tools and literary background from the ground up.

DepositA Search Engine for Electronic Literature

Our Level II grant proposal emerges from the Consortium for Electronic Literature (CELL), a partnership founded by the Electronic Literature Organization (ELO) and joining nine research centers, all developing online database projects devoted to research in electronic literature (e-lit). Building on existing achievements, we request $59,973 to implement the following: a web-based search engine for e-lit to display results from across the consortium databases; a unified name authority system to improve the data harvested by the search engine and to create more faceted and complex search results; and a training/how-to framework to extend our initiative to include future projects and partners and to establish standards and best practices in using the e-lit search engine.
