On Friday, September 23rd at 1PM, Andrew Smith will lead a discussion and brainstorming session on his work-in-progress LiteraryDJ. Born out of Black literary and musical practices, LiteraryDJ is a set of data exploration tools that draw inspiration from techniques used in electronic literature and computational poetry. "These creative tools," Andrew writes, "invite users to remix the found words, lyrics, and lines of literature discovered in the combined corpora of Hip hop lyrics and traditional Black scholarly texts into new creative expressions that continue the tradition of splicing, sampling, and weaving cultural memory to acknowledge and respond to histories past and present.

If, Then: Technology and Poetics is a working group and workshop series that meets monthly over Zoom. In this space, we bring together writers, coders, and scholars investigating the relationships between humans and machines and the works of art, literature, and visual knowledge they produce together. Our group is interdisciplinary and interinstitutional, consisting of faculty, staff, and graduate students from departments ranging from English to Architecture to Computer Science, alongside independent scholars, poets, and creative practitioners and technologists.
