Bloomsbury Handbook on Electronic Literature Awarded 2018 N. Katherine Hayles Prize

Profesor Joseph Tabbi and his contributors were awarded the N. Katherine Hayles Prize for critical writing at the Montreal meeting of the Electronic Literature Association last week in honor of The Bloomsbury Handbook for Electronic Literature.

Over 20 authors reflecting several continents and disciplines contributed to the Handbook, debating and analyzing electronic literature with both specific case studies and more general bird's-eye perspectives.

One of the Hayles jurors called this work a “monumental handbook for electronic literature.” In this nearly 500-page volume the authors, as one juror puts it, “realize their deep affection for generative intellectual work and aesthetic agonism.”
