What new kinds of stories can we tell as our media become pervasive? What kinds of new experiences do location based technologies offer readers?
Ambient Literature is a two-year research project, a collaboration between UWE Bristol, Bath Spa, and Birmingham Universities, involving a combination of historical and theoretical research and tangible practice-led inquiry. The post will be based at the Pervasive Media Studio, Bristol.
They are commissioning three authors to make original works and working with readers to understand the beauty and the power of situated literary experiences. The post will run over the length of the project, the post holder assisting with research and delivery in the process of production for each of the three original Ambient Literature works.
As such the post is aimed at a suitably qualified creative producer, who is committed to both delivering excellent projects as well as furthering their research by practice or publication. This research may be in the field of – for example – digital cultural forms, creative practice or new markets in publishing.
Deadline: 27 May 2016
