Title: “Computational Poetry” workshop

Speaker: Mindy Seu, Graduate School of Design, Harvard University and Lillian-Yvonne Bertram, UMass-Boston

Location: Curry Student Center, Room 433, 360 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02115

Please join us for a workshop on generating poetry, led by Mindy Seu of Harvard University and Lillian-Yvonne Bertram of UMass-Boston

Participants will learn a brief overview of generative poetry, ranging from works by Raymond Queneau of the OuLiPo to Alison Knowles of the Fluxus movement to modern-day Twitter bots. Then using Nick Montfort’s adaptation of A House of Dust, we will create poetry generators that will live on the web. The workshop will use HTML, CSS, and Javascript, but all are welcome—no coding experience necessary.

Please bring your own laptop or email Sarah Connell if that’s not possible.

Registration is required and space is limited; to RSVP, please email Sarah Connell at sa.connell[at]northeastern[dot]edu.
