New article on digital technologies and literary genres

A recent article by Claire has come out in a special issue of the journal Revista Tropelías: Revista de Teoría de la Literatura y Literatura Comparada. Guest edited by Teresa López-Pellisa and Ana Casas, the special issue is dedicated to the topic of ‘Narrativas transmedia, hipermedia e intermedia: teoría y crítica’.

After an introduction by the editors which sets out the boundaries of transmedia and transcultural dialogues, eleven articles follow which each take up a specific genre or groups of works. Claire’s article, entitled Entre “Born Digital” y herencia literaria: el diálogo entre formatos literarios y tecnología digital en la poética electrónica hispanoamericana’ explores Latin American electronic poetry. Starting off from the premise that new digital literary genres exist in a constant dialogue with a long-standing tradition of literary experimentation in Latin America, the article argues that many of the emerging digital literary genres – such as twitter-poetry, hypertext novels, or literary blogs – dialogue with prior literary movements or genres such as concrete poetry, caligrammes, testimonios, crónicas, and much more. Within this context, the article offers a comparative analysis of two works of electronic poetry from Latin American which dialogue with prior literary movements. It focuses in particular on the collective piece, Women: Memory of Repression in Argentina (2003) and Radikal Karaoke by Belén Gache, and aims to understand both of these works as on a continuum of possible negotiations between digital technologies and established literary genres.
