Attention à la marche! Mind The Gap!

(edited by Bertrand Gervais & Sophie Marcotte)


Mind the Gap!, the proceedings of the Electronic Literature Organization’s conference held in Montreal in 2018, intends to explicitly question the place of electronic literature in a digital culture. What is the nature of the relationship between the two? How does a form that is already fifty years old manage to remain relevant in a cultural environment strongly marked by digital technology? How does an avant-garde practice developed in the context of book culture succeed in adjusting to the principles of a culture heavily engaged in screens, networks and mobile devices? How can we take into account mobile technologies which are increasingly present in everyday life, understand their impact on writing and reading habits, and investigate the political dimension of digital technology, in its links to art, literature and culture?

Let's talk a little about Semantic Editing*.


By tagging the meaning as soon as the articles are written, semantic writing allows a more efficient editorialization of the content, and therefore its most faithful graphic transposition. Its use in HTML tagging of the text specifies its meaning (its semantism), and no longer its simple description, working towards a finer interpretation of the textual elements of digital and web publishing; in particular by embedded reading engines.
