The ELMCIP Electronic Literature Knowledge Base: Documentation, Connections and Visualizations


Published on

Talk given at "What are Digital Humanities?" at the University of Oslo, June 14, 2013.

A presentation of the ELMCIP Knowledge Base and the ways in which we've been working with visualization, and an addendum about alternative data sources for exploring what electronic literature - or the digital humanities - are. Most of the visualizations in this presentation and most of the slides themselves were made by Scott Rettberg.
