How To Measure A Coastline, Nora E. Culik 2020 Vassar College

How To Measure A Coastline, Nora E. Culik

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

The infinite shoreline of Lake Superior is embedded in the mathematical imagination, the memory of its stony beaches, and in the unifying consciousness that holds them all, just as the lake itself lies cradled in the land. The narrator of these paradoxes finds the lake, its border, and the calculi strewn along its shore a place a space between worlds where we rediscover that we can’t measure what we can’t locate, and can’t locate what we can’t measure, even the versions of ourselves.

The FaaS were future-oriented. Every day, they contemplated the question: what kind of ancestor will you be?

Lulling Waters: A Poetry Reading For Real-Time Music Generation Through Emotion Mapping, Ashley Muniz, Toshihisa Tsuruoka 2020 New York University

Lulling Waters: A Poetry Reading For Real-Time Music Generation Through Emotion Mapping, Ashley Muniz, Toshihisa Tsuruoka

Electronic Literature Organization Conference 2020

Through a poetic narrative, “Lulling Waters” tells the story of a whale overcoming the loss of his mother, who passed away from ingesting plastic, as he attempts to escape from the polluted oceanic world. The live performance of this poem utilizes a software system called Soundwriter, which was developed with the goal of enriching the oral storytelling experience through music. This video demonstrates how Soundwriter’s real-time hybrid system was able to analyze “Lulling Waters” through its lexical and auditory features. Emotionally salient words were given ratings based on arousal, valence, and dominance while the emotionally charged prosodic features of ...


Digital Orihon (デジタル折り本): The (Un)Continuous Shape Of The Novel., David T.H. Wright 2020 Nagoya University

Digital Orihon (デジタル折り本): The (Un)Continuous Shape Of The Novel., David T.H. Wright

Electronic Literature Organization Conference 2020

In ‘The Aesthetic of Bookishness in Twenty-first Century Literature’, Jessica Pressman (2009) proposes that the aesthetic of ‘bookishness’ is as old as the book form. The Tale of Genji (源氏物語) by Murasaki Shikibu is often considered the world’s first modern novel. The text is presented as an ‘orihon’ (折本): a ‘long strip of paper that is pleated into a stack, with a cover pasted at each end of the stack’ (Atwood, 10). ‘Orihon’ is a combination of the Japanese word for ‘fold’ (折) and ‘book’ or ‘source’ (本). The orihon is often also referred to as an ‘accordion’ book ...


Twine And The Challenge To Reading, Stuart Moulthrop 2020 University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Twine And The Challenge To Reading, Stuart Moulthrop

Electronic Literature Organization Conference 2020

The article considers the Twine story-game platform in relation to important critiques of earlier forms of electronic literature (specifically hypertext) from which it descends. Arguments for the significance of Twine are made based on aesthetic approaches (the fusion of literature and game culture) and the refinement of writing itself.

Non Infinite Stories: How Digital Allow To Create Infinite Reconformations Of A Text?, David Núñez

The Grey And The Liminal: A Study Of Ya Fantasy, Angelamarie Malkoun 2020 Johns Hopkins University

The Grey And The Liminal: A Study Of Ya Fantasy, Angelamarie Malkoun

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

“Young adult,” coined in the 1960s by the Young Adult Library Services Association, holds immense meaning though it has had a much shorter lifetime than “child” and “adult.” The young adult (“adolescent” or “teenager”) continues to exist within a grey area between the duality of child and adult, an area that tends to be disregarded due to stereotypes and clichés. In working extensively on Fantasy/Young Adult Fantasy literature from the 19th century to the present, my research has focused on the evolution of the adolescent/adolescence and how magic and temptation are used to argue the human inability ...

Aligning Assessments With Course Outcomes, Carol Damgen, Carol L. Damgen

Q2S Enhancing Pedagogy

This reflection is based on an educational assignment from my Oral Interpretation of Literature course at California State University, San Bernardino, May 2019.

A consistent focus and goal for me as an educator is to align assessments with course outcomes.

The learning outcome for this class session focused on the cognitive approach- “students will develop the skills to communicate an oral interpretation of literature to an audience with believability, dramatic action and honesty.”

The intention of this class period was for my students to clearly understand the difference between acting, reading and oral interpretation. Oral Interpretation is a type of ...
