The new English department website looks terrific, but it would look even better with complete graduate student profiles that include professional photos and information on individual research, teaching, and other projects. This workshop is designed to show you how to make your profile look great.

The aim of this presentation is to highlight the importance of Brazilian Concrete poets of the 1950s for the practice of E-literature and visual arts at the present time. In what ways did the works of Erthos Souza, the Campos brothers, and D├ęcio Pignatari, among others anticipate the aesthetic sensibility of current digital writers and artists? How has this tradition or legacy been transformed by the major figures in Brazilian digital culture in the 21st century?
