Ficti on, and Culture



Hi all:

This is Lisa Yaszek from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

I'm now pleased to officially invite you all to our symposium on
"Monstrous Bodies in Science, Fiction, and Culture," which will take
place at Georgia Tech on March 31 and April 1 (with a week of
preliminary events leading up to the symposium itself).

Our special guests of honor are two leading figures in fantastic art and
scholarship: science fiction author Paul di Filippo and popular culture
expert Rhonda Wilcox. Di Filippo will read an original short story
written for the symposium, and Wilcox will read excerpts from her
forthcoming book, Why Buffy Matters: The Art of Television.

Additionally, the Monstrous Bodies symposium will feature student
research on and creative writing in science fiction, fantasy, horror,
and the gothic. The symposium will also include art and film exhibits as
well as presentations by local scholars, science fiction writers,
editors, publishers, and artists from CArtoon Network's Adult Swim. For
a full program and more information about our symposium participants,
see our website at http:
//monstrousbodies.lcc.gatech.edu.


Feel free to email me privately if you have any other questions.

Best--Lisa

From: "Charles Baldwin" 
Subject: analog & digital :: definitions and debates

http://www.as.wvu.edu:8000/clc/projects/plaintext_tools/AnalogDigital 

Analog & Digital. We think we live in a digital age, but what is the
digital? We think our lives and bodies are analog, but what is the
analog? These distinctions shape us and our world, from the cell phones
we talk on to the weight and sensation of our experience, yet there is
little concensus when it comes to the analog & digital.

We propose a collaborative exploration, definition, and debate about
the analog & digital using the plain_text zwiki (zope wiki) at the West
Virginia University's Center for Literary Computing. We've already
posted a provocative and important essay on the topic by writer and
internet philosopher Alan Sondheim. We welcome your responses, either
following Sondheim's essay or striking off in new directions.

Follow this link to access the zwiki:
