UPDATE: Paris in the summer is beyond this grad student’s budget. Oh well, at least I got in. Maybe next time.
I’ll be presenting about my Poetry in Motion study at the 5th International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities in July 2007. You can read the abstract here.
Poetry in Motion is a study around kinetic typography and its use in poetry teaching. My pilot study showed a great deal of promise for animated text helping students get over their initial hesistance to engage with a poem, and I’ll be running experiments in the next few weeks to test those preliminary results. Come to Paris next summer (or check back on the blog) for results!
