Coming Soon . . . Textshop Experiments

We are now three weeks away from the release of Issue #1: Textshop (T)issues

textshop logoFor our inaugural issue, the editors seek multi-modal projects that act as a supplement or response to Ulmer’s latest collection of essays, Electracy: Gregory L. Ulmer’s Textshop Experiments (Davies Group, 2015).

 

To join the experiment, participants engage in the familiar practice of note-taking.  Here, these “written readings” are taken up as a craft that allow various possibilities of understanding and creating new theory.

The first (t)issue begins with the premise of notes on napkins, scraps of paper, jottings, scribbles, and other impulsive schemes around the term electracy and heuretics.  Submissions may be delivered in a variety of forms:

  • Notebook excerpts, scraps of paper, & meeting transcripts
  • Cartoons, sketches, & doodles
  • Charts, maps, graphs, & diagrams
  • Video logs & lectures
  • Audio diaries & seminar sound bytes
  • Email exchanges and social media posts
  • And other ephemeral records, especially the ones we haven’t thought of.

Files may be sent as doc/docx, jpeg, mp3 and mp4s.   These files should be accompanied by a short critical or contextual statement by the creators (no more than 2000 words.)

This issue will be published in May 2016, but we will continue to accept submissions on a rolling basis until October 1, 2016.  Accepted work will be published as a second set of tissues and added to the collection.

Submission files and preliminary queries should be sent to the editors at: ulmertextshop@gmail.com.  Please provide your name, institutional affiliation, and a short bio in the text of the email.
