We are proposing a reading of the work that the undergraduate students of Chapman in Orange California have been doing in the realm of avant-garde literature. A small number of Chapman students have found their voices in experimental literature, they have found the ability to freely explore themes of isolation, intimacy, and relationships, having to do with the rise of technological use in the digital age. Chapman students are seeking a new way to explore life around them through experimental literature. They haven’t been able to find to find a voice in the digital age they relate to, so they are creating their own work. We will each read short samples of our work, splitting up the time between us, as well as leaving time for a Q&A at the end.
