OPENING SYMPOSIUM – A Round Table Discussion
Friday, March 11 from 10am to 12:30pm, BIDS (Doe 190)
OPENING RECEPTION with poet Amaranth Borsuk and writer Doménico Chiappe
This exhibition, NL||LE, presents a collection of digital works of literature—in Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan as well as English—side by side with experimental print materials from the past century. Meant to be read on computers and other digital devices, the electronic stories and poems reveal new ideas about literary and media developments and encourage visitors to interact with the machines. Exhibit cases and tables were designed by students in a Berkeley Center for New Media seminar. Through the use of vintage computing equipment, NL||LE also highlights challenges involved in the preservation of electronic literature.
With additional support from the Hellman Foundation, Townsend Center for the Humanities, College of Letters and Science, Digital Humanities at Berkeley, Institute of European Studies, Portuguese Studies Program, Fundação Lusoamericana, Center for Latin American Studies, Berkeley Institute for Data Science, and the Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities, University of Kansas.
All events are free and open to the public.
