    Natural Language: Readings and Performances
    January 4, 2019 @ School of the Art Institute of Chicago
    Reception at 6:30,; Readings at 7:30

    In conjunction with the 2019 MLA conference, the Electronic Literature Organization and the Art & Technology Studies (ATS) department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) will host an evening of readings, performances, and screenings of electronic writing and poetic technologies. The event will include a reception to celebrate N. Katherine Hayles and the impact of her NEH summer seminars while also marking the 50th year of Art & Technology Studies and its history of poetic media and invention.

    The event is seeking interventions of up to 7 minutes from established and emerging practitioners working with language in contexts that might include computational poetics, machine learning, augmented or virtual reality, electronics, bio-poetry, or other live or living media.

    Please send inquiries to Dene Grigar (dgrigar@wsu.edu) and Judd Morrissey (jmorrissey@saic.edu) including a short description and link to online documentation.
