    Potential possibilities of peripheral porosity: a combinatory creative community keynote
    (University College Cork; Electronic Literature Organization, 2019-07-15) Maguire, Michael J.; O'Sullivan, James
    Drawing 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.

    “These Waves ...”: writing new bodies for applied e-literature studies
    (University College Cork; Electronic Literature Organization, 2019-07-17) Ensslin, Astrid; O'Sullivan, James
    In 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.
