The Erasing Impulse: Constellations of Practices

Seiça, Álvaro

This slide presentation is an extract of the talk "The Art of Deleting: On Poetry and Erasure" at the UCLA Information Studies Colloquium, on December 3, 2020: https://youtu.be/ZiOMRsCGGOs


Here, I filter a dataset of 400 creative works that employ erasure techniques and propose three different types of constellations of practices: 

  • Constellation Blackout
  • Constellation Covering
  • Constellation Redaction

This file is a complementary resource to the book chapter: "The Erasing Impulse: Veiling and Unveiling the Poetic and the Political." In Global Perspectives on Digital Literature, edited by Torsa Ghosal. New York: Routledge (forthcoming 2022).
