The Transcriptions 2014 Newsletter is out!

It contains information on the events and projects Transcriptions is doing beginning Fall 2014. If you missed our kick-off event last week, you won’t want to miss reading our newsletter. We hope to see you in the center soon.

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 Décio 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?
