Abstract / Summary

This article began as a conference paper given at the University of Bergen in September 2008. The conference was entitled ‘Electronic Literature in Europe’ and was organised by Dr Scott Rettberg, Associate Professor in Literary, Linguistic, and Aesthetic Studies at Bergen. On the basis of the paper/presentation, I was invited by Prof. Raine Koskimaa and Dr Markku Eskilinen of Jyvaskyla University, Finland to submit an extended version to Cybertext Yearbook. According to Hans Kristian Rustad in Dichtung Digital 41,(2012) "... the Cybertext Yearbook series as a publication venue for critical writing should be highlighted here. The Yearbook .... has established its position in the field as a well cited peer-review journal." Similarly, Koskimaa and Eskilinen are two of the most respected scholars in the field of electronic literature. The paper was an early attempt to theorise digital text within the context of performance writing/studies and pragmatics, suggesting this as a fruitful alternative to the predominantly literary perspective of many who write about digital textuality. This investigation of performativity and digital text was central to my work as Principal Researcher within ELMCIP, (Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice). This was a three year, pan-European project funded by HERA (Humanities in the European Research Area). On the basis of the research I have been invited to present subsequent papers on this topic at the Universities of Bristol, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Paris 8 and Granada. I was also invited by Dr Andrew Michael Roberts, Professor of Poetry at Dundee, to join his research proposal on Interactivity and Performativity which was shortlisted for the AHRC Digital TransformationsLarge Grants Call.
