2015 Honours student Jianni Tien has been awarded a Hong Kong Government Fellowship to undertake a PhD investigating:
Through case studies of electronic literature works, this research asks 1) How does conceiving of works of electronic literature as a network, or media ecology, lead to new knowledge of the work? 2) What new research practices within the field contribute to non-anthropocentric readings of electronic literature? 3) How can a new language of analysis be applied to a work of digital literature without intimate knowledge of code?
The scholarship provides a tuition waver and a monthly studentship of approximately AUD2,500. Jianni’s honours research undertook a materialist reading of John Cayley and Daniel C. Howe’s Poetics of Reading and was examined by Lori Emmerson and Rita Raley.
