Interactive Fiction in Queer Digital Culture

Collected by: University of Michigan Library

Archived since: Mar, 2017

Description:

New digital platforms and tools for creative expression have transformed the landscape in experimental fiction and led to the emergence of a queer interactive fiction scene that pushes against mainstream commercial literary and gaming culture. LGBTQ writers are using tools that democratize development (because they require few programming skills) to create interactive fictions that take up questions of race, class, LGBTQ identity, mental and physical health, and a host of other issues. Because these works of interactive fiction are independently produced and often made freely available online, there are few mechanisms for preservation, and significant examples can disappear from defunct personal websites. We are collecting websites by individual authors/creators, examples of interactive fiction, and other publicly contextual available information about this form of queer digital culture.
