Publishing and Publicizing Digital Literature: Feed-Back about a Research-Creation Project

Abstract : Panel] This communication intends to present a prototype of enhanced ebook designed this year as part of the Labex Arts-H2H project “Digital publishing design for scientific and artistic events,” in partnership with ELo, the Fernando Pessoa University and the the French hybrid books publisher L’Apprimerie. This research-creation project proposes to answer the needs of participants (authors and artists) of hybrid manifestations such as ELo conferences, linking scientific symposiums and artistic exhibitions. So far, as the overview and surveys presented in ELo 2016 Victoria have showed, reviews ranking at the same level artistic and scientific outputs are not yet available or recognized by legitimate institutions. Arts and humanities researchers have specific needs to go public. Can we imagine a model that considers artistic forms as valid for the publication of research? Considering that the design of a publication influences the way we receive and understand it, we studied the role of the publication models in the production, transmission and understanding of creation and research on digital literature. our goal is to design a transmedia hybrid model for artistic and scientific publication. Therefore in this communication we wish to explore the technical and artistic potentialities of the ePub3 format (fixed layout, html5, audio & video enhanced contents, annotations). Different kinds of contributions will be merged and combined in a pilot copy dedicated to digital literature: scientific article, interviews, critical texts, original artistic works, remediatizations, extracts, documentation around a work, facsimile. We will first present on historic overview of the project, then the scientific, artistic stakes, and the working process we imagine by working in our teams made from members of Paris 8 university, EnsAD art and design school, and the French digital publisher L’Apprimerie. We will especially argue on the graphical, ergonomical dimensions of the project. We will then examine how the not very well known ePub3 format could be used to publish, disseminate and publicize digital literature.
