But where Scott questions – rightly – the future popularity of e-literature – I can’t help thinking about the two classes I taught on digital poetry last year. These courses were brand-new and full from the first to the last day of class. I now have a waiting list for the digital poetry class I’m teaching in the fall. This is not testament to my teaching but rather to what these students tell me over and over again: thank god I’m finally learning something that’s relevant! Surprising considering how most conventional scholars view these same digital poems as esoteric and “weird.” The future of e-literature lies with these students who will force academic conservatives to make room for it. I hope.
