ELO 2014: Call For Contributions

Electronic Literature Organization 2014 Conference: Hold the Light

Milwaukee, WI (June 19-21, 2014)

The 2014 Electronic Literature Organization Conference will be held June 19-21, 2014 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with sessions on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. In conjunction with the three-day conference, there will be a juried Media Arts Show, with exhibits at UWM.

For the Conference, proposals should address critical, reflective, or theoretical questions. Formats may include elements of demonstration or (brief) performance, in context of inquiry or analysis that goes beyond the work itself. Proposers are welcome to discuss their own work, under this requirement.

The Media Arts Show provides an occasion for extended display, performance, and presentation of original works. Please identify submissions for the Show as such.

We invite proposals of no more than 500 words, including a brief description of the content and format of the presentation, and contact information for the presenter(s). Describe any technical needs beyond standard screen projection and audio. Send proposals to eliterature2014 [at], using plain text format in the email, or attached as Word or PDF.

Proposals for the Conference will be reviewed by a Program Committee convened by the Conference Co-Chairs. Proposals for the Media Art Show will be reviewed by a jury chosen by the Media Arts Curator.


Proposals are requested by Friday, December 6, 2013

Program Committee Chairs
  • Marjorie Luesebrink, Independent Artist (Co-Chair)
