Hearts And Minds: The Interrogations Project

Group leader: Scott Rettberg scott.rettberg@lle.uib.no

Bergen Electronic Literature research group (BEL) studies literary works created for digital media. In 2015 we hosted the international Electronic Literature Organization conference and literary arts festival, which was held in Bergen 4-7 August. An important project for us is the ELMCIP Electronic Literature Knowledge Base, and in recent research we have focused on visualising and analysing the extensive data we have organised in the Knowledge Base. Our research often combines theory and practice, as in the award-winning VR narrative Hearts and Minds, pictured at left.
