“Towards a Digital Epistemology: Printed Texts and the Logic of Electronic Literature» (actual presentation)

In may actual presentation in Paris, i further elaborated the concept of digital epistemology, thorugh three intesecting approaches:

 

1)    Reading history in the light of digital culture.

2)    Relating literary texts and artworks to digital history.

3)    Reading literary texts and artworks as if they were electronic texts – that is: analyzing for example a novel in terms of embodiment, processes, materiality and even »software». Not what an artwork mean but what it does.

To expand on these propositions I am looking closer to boms and viruses… and finally asking the question whether there is an »ELO»-way to read Astrid Lindgren or Geoffrey Chaucer?
