 Postgraduate program on ‘Poetry and Poetics’ Seminar: « Kinetic poetry»

Docente: Manuel Portela

 Postgraduate program on ‘Poetry and Poetics’
Seminar: « Kinetic poetry»
Course description
We will look at ways in which the motion of meaning in the chain of signifiers, one of the structural features of language, is simulated in several kinetic poems. We will see how specific forms of animating texts symbolize both the instability of signifiers and the instability of meaning. This reflection on the electronic and graphic materiality of reading and writing in new media will be based upon works by British, North-American, Canadian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Brazilian authors. Hyperlinks for a selection of digital works can be found at the following webpage: http://www.ci.uc.pt/diglit/DigLitWebCdeCineticos.html
Assessment will be continuous (75% attendance is required). It will be based upon the following assignments: a critical review of two items chosen from the course bibliography (c. 2000 words, 50% of final grade), and analysis of one animated poem in essay form (c. 2000 words, 50%).
