Fall 2016 Update

Leave a comment

This semester continues to be a busy one for collaborations. My co-editors and I have been reviewing submissions for the edited collection Buzzademia: Scholarship in the Internet Vernacular while I am continuing to work on Critical Code Studies scholarship. My family and I have been developing on the Mrs.Wobbles stories, and Maria Goicocechea has just translated Switcheroo into Spanish! (Contact us to arrange a reading or workshop at your school or library.) I have also started a new blog on digital literature for children. In November, the New York Times ran a short op-ed I wrote about taking selfies in the ballot box, including a link to my selfies writing assignment (Know Thy Selfie), which was part of my identity and diversity course.

Fall Talks:

  • International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling (ICIDS) (Los Angeles)
  • Social Media Narratives: Issues in Contemporary Practice (Rutgers, Camden)
  • Society for Literature Science and the Arts (SLSA) (Atlanta)
  • Berkeley Center for New Media “Lessons in Netprov
  • International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (ISSOTL) (Los Angeles)

Recent Publications:

This past June, Jeremy and Jessica and I were honored that our collaborative book, Reading Project(Iowa 2015), won the N. Katherine Hayles Award for Criticism of Electronic Literature, especially since we all feel very much in her debt intellectually and emotionally.

Creatively, Rob Wittig and I collaborated on four projects: Thermophiles in Love (which was featured as a larp at SLSA), Monstrous Weather, Air-B-N-Me, and a new narrative project Baby Seals written on the Sequel Platform. The next Mrs. Wobbles story is underway along with a spring netprov. Contact me for more information.
