Abstract: Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice (ELMCIP) was a three-year collaborative research project running from 2010-2013, funded by the Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) JRP for Creativity and Innovation. ELMCIP involved seven European academic research partners and one non-academic partner who investigated how creative communities of practitioners form within a transnational and transcultural context in a globalized and distributed communication environment. Focusing on the electronic literature community in Europe as a model of networked creativity and innovation in practice, ELMCIP intended both to study the formation and interactions of that community and also to further electronic literature research and practice in Europe.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors focus on how a digital reader negotiates his/her position inside the digital text by decoding the programmer's/author's encoded plot, which makes it a challenging task for the reader to connect the affordances of a digital text.
Abstract: A digital performer has to negotiate with different kinds of affordances inside the space of a digital text. The Nightingale’s Playground (2010), a digital fiction authored by Andy Campbell and Judi Alston offers the reader/player with four versions of the text centering on the protagonist Carl Robertson who tries hard to search for his lost school friend Alex Nightingale. The online texts (‘Consensus Trance’, ‘Fieldwork Book’) and the gaming version of the digital fiction (‘Consensus Trance II’) offer the reader different decisional platforms. This makes it a challenging task for the reader to connect the affordances of the digital text. At the same time, the offline pdf version of the digital fiction hints at Carl being affected by a psychological disorder. The paper shall focus on how a digital reader negotiates his/her position inside the digital text by decoding the programmer’s/author’s encoded plot.

TL;DR: Escaja as mentioned in this paper is a poeta universal, autora de Caída libre, premio Dulce María Loynaz de poesía de 2003, dotado with varios miles de euros pero que salió barato.
Abstract: INTRODUCCIÓN T es catedrática de literatura latinoamericana en la Universidad de Vermont. Es de origen castellano, zamorana, criada como proletaria en Barcelona, pescadera de profesión. Estudió filología en la Universidad de Barcelona y el doctorado en Estados Unidos en la Universidad de Pensilvania, en Filadelfia. Es la autora de Caída libre, premio Dulce María Loynaz de poesía de 2003, dotado con varios miles de euros pero que salió barato ya que Caída libre es un poemario fundamental para entender la poesía en español en el siglo XXI: Es el viaje más desgarrado y antimítico nunca hecho del tema de la maternidad. Tina es también ciberpoeta, aunque se resigna a continuar publicando libros en papel. Ha sido traducida a múltiples lenguas. Es también autora de teatro, cómica y artista plástica. Su alter ego es Alm@ Pérez, un cíborg, con quien parece que se lleva bien. Esta entrevista estuvo acompañada en sus diversos momentos de clam chowder, de una calderada de marisco y chorizo, y café de Panera. Tina es una viajera incansable, ha recorrido medio mundo y espera recorrer el otro medio pronto. Esta entrevista se dio a cabo durante el congreso anual de la Modern Language Association, del 3 al 6 de enero de 2013, que tuvo lugar en la ciudad de Boston, Massachusetts. Durante esos días, mientras afuera hacía un frío propio de la época, nos encontramos con la poeta universal, Tina Escaja.

TL;DR: In this paper, Ricoeur argues that o texto como um todo singular se pode comparar a object, visto de varios lados mas nunca de todos, simultaneamente.
Abstract: Perspectivas e o que temos, quer se discuta o texto quer se discuta o cibertexto. Dizia Ricoeur que o texto como um todo singular se pode comparar a um objecto, visto de varios lados mas nunca de todos, simultaneamente. Decidimos sempre olhar de um certo modo. Ora, estamos num tempo em que do dia para a noite varias propostas, novas perspectivas, novas formas de textualidade emergem. Necessita-se para isso de uma terminologia mais consistente do que as formas que ocorrem.

TL;DR: In this paper, Cohen makes a distinct break with earlier approaches to the study of community, which treated the subject in largely structural terms, and describes how people symbolise and utilise these boundaries to give substance to their values and identities.
Abstract: Anthony Cohen makes a distinct break with earlier approaches to the study of community, which treated the subject in largely structural terms. His view is interpretive and experiential, seeing the community as a cultural field with a complex of symbols whose meanings vary among its members. He delineates a concept applicable to local and ethnic communities through which people see themselves as belonging to society. The emphasis on boundary is sensitive to the circumstances in which people become aware of the implications of belonging to a community, and describes how they symbolise and utilise these boundaries to give substance to their values and identities.
