Faculty, students and alumni from the Texts & Technology doctoral program are part of the Climates of Change Electronic Literature panel on Monday, October 19. This panel and its accompanying digital exhibition of the same name are a follow-up to the summer ACM Hypertext conference that was held at UCF. Both the “Climates of Change” virtual panel and digital exhibition feature current and recent Texts and Technology and digital media graduate students.

In partnership with ACM Hypertext 2020, “Climates of Change” is a completely virtual exhibition of electronic literature, co-curated by T&T director Anastasia Salter. The exhibition debuted virtually alongside a conference hosted at UCF in July and is now traveling to new audiences as part of the Fall for the Book.

From works that are poetic to personal challenges to warnings for the future, “Climates for Change” responds to the overwhelming “climates of change,” focusing on the ongoing environmental crisis. They ask artists and viewers to engage with the global concerns through the lens of local and the personal. The event features digital media alumna Rachel Donley’s “I look, but I can’t see” and digital media student Alex Boyd’s “Trail.”

Registration for the event is free and open to the public, and the virtual exhibition can be viewed on the “Climates of Change” website.
