- ItemELO2019: Electronic Literature Organization Conference & Media Arts Festival [Poster](Electronic Literature Organization, 2019-05) Schoerner, Anne-Kathrin; O'Sullivan, JamesThe annual Electronic Literature Organization (ELO) Conference & Media Arts Festival was held at University College Cork in July 2019. This was the first time that the ELO conference, one of the major international gatherings of scholars and practitioners working at the intersection between literature and new media aesthetics, was hosted in Ireland. The theme for ELO2019 was "peripheries", with delegates invited to explore the edges of literary and digital culture, including emerging traditions, indeterminate structures and processes, fringe communities of praxis, effaced forms and genres, marginalised bodies, and perceptual failings. The Chair of ELO2019 was Dr James O'Sullivan (School of English & Digital Humanities).

- ItemPotential possibilities of peripheral porosity: a combinatory creative community keynote(University College Cork; Electronic Literature Organization, 2019-07-15) Maguire, Michael J.; O'Sullivan, JamesDrawing upon the experiences, opinions, views, and theories of several respected and renowned international practitioners of electronic literature, Maguire explores options and opportunities for porosity. Maguire offers the audience present the options of a keynote that itself addresses a counter concept to fixed conference circumferences. Through participatory means, this keynote challenges such complex circular theoretical boundaries, via the collective dissolution of solid, static, or secure, structures.
- ItemAt the brink: electronic literature, technology, and the peripheral imagination(University College Cork; Electronic Literature Organization, 2019-07-16) Karhio, Anne; O'Sullivan, JamesPeriods of rapid technological change also redraw our sense of cultural and geographical periphery. Routes of transport and travel, communications infrastructures, and networks of cultural production extend, transform, and redirect the perimeters of our personal and collective imagination. In this lecture I will examine how Ireland’s location at the geographical margin of Europe has also rendered it a focal point of technological experimentation and exchange, and has closely entwined it with the story of electronic literature. I propose that the peripheral imagination informing this relationship can also encourage the kind of cultural dissent needed to tackle the consequences of unchecked technological ambition to the fragile environments of the Anthropocene.
- Item“These Waves ...”: writing new bodies for applied e-literature studies(University College Cork; Electronic Literature Organization, 2019-07-17) Ensslin, Astrid; O'Sullivan, JamesIn this talk I am going to reassess the social and psychological possibilities of e-lit research and practice by riding a new wave of applied, interventionist e-lit scholarship. I report on the methods and early findings of the “Writing New Bodies” project (“WNB”; SSHRC IG 435-2018-1036; Ensslin et al. 2019), which aims to develop a digital fiction for a new form of contemporary, digital-born bibliotherapy. In following the principles of critical community codesign and feminist participatory action research, WNB engages young women ages 18-25 in envisioning worlds where they feel at home in their bodies. Our workshops encourage them to engage, conversationally and through reading, co-designing and writing digital fiction, with key challenges facing young women today, including cis- and heteronormative gender relations, racism, anti-fat attitudes, ableism, and familial influences on the ways young women “ought to look” (Rice 2014). Part of the intervention is for the participants to hyper-textualize experiences, anxieties and desires they associate with their bodies, and to explore diverse options for reimagining and developing resilience to appearance-driven neoliberalist pressures. The end product will be a work of or a platform for digital fiction developed in community-tested iterations by leading feminist e-lit artist and WNB post-doctoral research-creationist, Christine Wilks.
