Lecture: Third Generation Electronic Literature

I was recently invited to give a lecture at the University of Bergen on January 31, 2018 and the recording is now available. My talk, titled “Third Generation Electronic Literature” offers a historical overview of electronic literature, builds upon genealogies of the field by Hayles and Funkhouser, and describes a third wave of e-literature that emerged circa 2005. I believe this third generation will produce massively popular works and lead to mainstream adoption of electronic literature.

Big thanks to Scott Rettberg, Jill Walker Rettbert, Daniel Apollon, Daniel Jung, Álvaro Seiça, Mia Zamora, and the Digital Culture students, faculty, and staff at UiB for the invitation, warm welcome, great questions, and video production.
