Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice (ELMCIP) is a collaborative research project funded by Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) JRP for Creativity and Innovation. ELMCIP involves seven European academic research partners and one non-academic partner who are investigating how creative communities of practitioners form within a transnational and transcultural context in a globalized and distributed communication environment. Focusing on the electronic literature community in Europe as a model of networked creativity and innovation in practice, ELMCIP is intended both to study the formation and interactions of that community and to further electronic literature research and practice in Europe.
The partners include: University of Bergen, Norway (PL Scott Rettberg, Co-I Jill Walker Rettberg), Edinburgh College of Art, Scotland (PI Simon Biggs, Co-I Penny Travlou), Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden (PI Maria Engberg, Co-I Talan Memmott), University of Amsterdam, Netherlands (PI Yra Van Dijk), University of Ljubljana, Slovenia (PI Janez Strechovec), University of Jyväskylä, Finland (PI Raine Koskimaa), University College Falmouth at Dartington, England (PI Jerome Fletcher), and New Media Scotland.
We took part in this project as case studies in the research “Digital Manual: Authority, Authorship and Voice” by Dr Penny Travlou (PI), a cultural geographer, and Dr Smita Kheria (Co-I), a legal scholar in intellectual property law and copyright.
We will present our point of view at the ELMCIP Conference “Remediatng the social” on November 1st 2012.
