The 2014 Off the Shelf Festival programme has been launched, and bookings are now open for all of our digital fiction events, including Kate Pullinger’s talk: ‘Beyond the Book: Digital Fiction’.
Kate will be speaking on 12th October from 2-3.30pm in “Showroom 5” at The Showroom (15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield, S1 2BX).
Over the past decade, new hybrid forms of literature have begun to emerge as writers and artists experiment with digital technologies. As well as writing novels and short stories in print, Kate Pullinger has long been involved with thinking about what it means for writing to move off the page and onto screens. She’ll discuss her award-winning digital projects Inanimate Alice and Flight Paths as well as her WWI Centenary participatory project, Letter to an Unknown Soldier.
Free tickets are available from The Showroom Box Office and can be reserved in person or by calling 0114 275-7727.
Today’s Faculty of Development and Society Research Conference at Sheffield Hallam University will include a paper by Jen Smith called “How do ‘you’ read digital fiction? An empirical approach”. If you can’t make it to Sheffield, the slides will be available in Our Research. Hope to see you there!
We’re delighted to announce that Kate Pullinger will be giving a public lecture during Off the Shelf this October. In conjunction with our exhibition at Bank Street Arts, Kate will be speak about her digital and print fiction in a lecture titled “Beyond the Book: Digital Fiction”.
