New Article on Literary Heritage & Digital Genres

An article by Claire has recently been published in the journal Comparative Critical Studies.

The article appears in a special issue of the journal, guest-edited by Emanuela Patti. The special issue focuses on narrative experimentation across languages, and includes phenomenon such as avant-garde and postmodern experiments with novelistic form, graphic novels, hypertext fiction, game literature, collaborative fictions, fan fiction, and transmedia storytelling.

Golpe de gracia by Jaime Alejandro Rodríguez

Claire’s article, entitled ‘From the Baroque to Twitter: Tracing the Literary Heritage of Digital Genres’, explores contemporary digital literary genres and the complex negotiations they undertake with earlier moments of literary experimentation. Exploring digital literary genres as works on a continuum, the article addresses in particular the ways in which authors of digital works in the Hispanic world speak back to rich Hispanic tradition of literary experimentation.

The article takes three case studies from different countries: firstly, the hypermedia novela negra of Colombian author Jaime Alejandro Rodríguez; secondly, the blog aphorisms of US-Salvadoran artist and writer Eduardo Navas; and lastly the electronic poetry of Spanish-Argentine author Belén Gache.

The special issue, including Claire’s article, can be accessed at the CCS website: http://www.euppublishing.com/toc/ccs/13/3
