Diogo Marques, Ana Gago

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



Presenting contemporary Portuguese digital literature within the context of prior experimentalist practices and authors, such as those identified as part of the PO.EX movement, in this article we intend to demonstrate the potential of artistic and literary (re)creation, namely through the exploration of constraint, as well as the use of combinatorics and generativity, in wreading processes, for the transmission and safeguarding of folk narratives as manifestations of Portuguese immaterial (literary) heritage. In addition, the examples analysed in this paper, are to be considered in the light of an educational and participative strategy following the recommendations of UNESCO’s Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.
