Keywords Chat - Flarf, Weds. 3/22

Click to Zoom.

Prof. Ken Sherwood will lead the next chat in the #Keywords series. "Flarf is an early twenty-first century neologism ... to describe a poetic composition tactic specific to networked digital media, the sensibility that informs it, and, eventually a poetic movement.... Flarf composition typically involves the application of constraint based appropriate to digital media; in Flarf, this often involves burrowing into Google search results for inappropriate, awkward, obscene, or otherwise non-literary text." (Flarf, Darrwn Wershler).

#Keywords Chats on Digital Culture aim to foster a conversation on diverse digital culture topics outside of the classroom. Participants join in the round table discussion, enjoy illuminating "demos" and benefit from the expertise of a student or faculty chat leader.
