LEA Special Issue: New Media Poetry and Poetics
Guest Editor: Tim Peterson (newmedia at astn.net)

The Leonardo Electronic Almanac (ISSN No: 1071-4391) is inviting papers and
artworks that deal with New Media Poetry and Poetics. This category includes
multimedia digital works (image/text/sound) as examined through the lens of
"writing," specifically any of those concerns central to avant-garde poetry
rather than narrative or prose: reader as active participant in the
"ergodic" sense, the use of chance or automatism inherited from movements
such as Oulipo (highlighting the literalized metaphor which automatism
becomes here), and the complex relations between the author, reader, and
computer-as-writer/reader which evolve from that interaction. Any work that
foregrounds the medium as such (for example, web poetry that incorporates
code) is also welcome. We would particularly like to emphasize the "poetics"
of new media writing as well, that is, the point where aesthetics intersects
with politics to create dynamic attempts at social change.

LEA encourages international artists / academics / researchers / students to
submit their proposals for consideration. We particularly encourage authors
outside North America and Europe to send proposals for
articles/gallery/artists statements.

Proposals should include:
-       300 word abstract / synopsis
-       A brief author biography
-       Any related URLs
-       Contact details

Deadline for proposals: 15 Aug 2004

Please send proposals or queries to:

What is LEA? 

Established in 1993, the Leonardo Electronic Almanac (ISSN No: 1071-4391) is
the electronic arm of the pioneer art journal, Leonardo - Journal of Art,
Science & Technology.

The Leonardo Electronic Almanac (LEA), jointly produced by Leonardo, the
International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology (ISAST) and
published under the auspices of MIT Press is an  electronic journal
dedicated to providing a forum for those who are interested in the realm
where art, science and technology converge.


This peer reviewed e-journal includes profiles of media arts facilities and
projects, profiles of artists using new media, feature articles comprised of
theoretical and technical perspectives; the LEA Gallery exhibiting new media
artwork by international artists; detailed information about new
publications in various media; and reviews of publications, events and
exhibitions. Material is contributed by artists, scientists, educators and
developers of new technological resources in the media arts.


Since 2002, LEA formed a strategic alliance with fineArt forum - the
Internet's longest running arts magazine. Through this partnership, LEA
concentrates on adding new scholarship and
critical commentary to the art, science and technology field, with LEA
subscribers benefiting from the latest news, announcements, events, and
job/educational opportunities through fAf's online news service.

LEA's mission is to maintain and consolidate its position as a leading
online news and trusted information filter while critically examining
arts/science & technological works catering to the international CAST
(Community of Artists, Scientist and Technologists)
