research question goal and outcome
Research question, goal and outcome
  • What’s the preconditions for reading hypertext fiction?
  • To evolve concepts for unfolding the preconditons for reading
  • To gain a more nuanced picture of the process of reading hypertext fiction
slide3
Four modes ofreading
    • Semantisation
    • Exploration
    • Self-reflection
    • Absorption
  • Discussed in relation to
    • W. Iser
    • Richard Bartle
  • Interrelationshipoftwodimensionsofreadingactivity in hypertextfiction
    • Intentionality versus non-intentionality
    • Immediacy versus hypermediacy
  • Three aspects in thereadingprocess
    • Interactivity
    • Experienceofcoherence
    • Genre recognition
semantisation
Semantisation
  • Search for meaning
  • Confirmative reading
  • The outcome of the reader’s choice is predictable
  • A rampart against the intrusion of the unfamiliar
  • ”the semantic orientation of reading” (Iser)
  • ”achievers” (Bartle)
    • Players who are primarily oriented towards a goal
exploration
Exploration
  • Mode of gaining experience
  • The outcome of the reader’s choice is unpredictable
  • The hypertext takes chance as a principle
  • ”The pleasure is related to discovering something new” (Iser)
  • ”The explorers” (Bartle)
self reflection
Self-reflection
  • “I connect my computer to the network, sipping my morning coffee. My hair is still wet from the shower when I check my email and find it there in between other messages: an email from Caroline. I read it quickly and then visit her web site. She’s waiting for me. She holds a shirt she’s just bought up to the webcam so I can see it, asking me afterwards by email whether I’d like her to send it to me. “Yes”, I answer, clicking and typing my responses into the web form and giving her my physical address. Caroline knows I like coffee and she knows I read her email in the morning. Caroline and I are friends.” (Walker 2003:65)
  • “Being a heterosexual woman, I fill in those blanks in Caroline’s character and in my own self-presentation so they will suit my expectations of a relationship between girls talking about boyfriends and work and emotions.” (ibid.:76)
self reflection1
Self-reflection
  • Self-enjoyment in the enjoyment of someone else (Iser)
  • Sosialiser (Bartle)
  • Playing a role as someone else
  • In this self-enjoyment the reader becomes aware of his own codes, expectations and experiences
absorption
Absorption
  • Embodies the most intensive absorption of the reader in hypertext
  • Pursuing vertigo
  • Pleasurable and enjoyable, or frightful and frustrating
  • ”the pleasure of the text” (Barthes, Iser)
  • ”the killers” (Bartle)
  • Hovers ”on the borders of illegibility” (Hayles)
slide9
Intentionality

Immediacy/Focus on the fictive world

Hypermediacy/Focus on the text

Non-intentionality

slide11
A more nuanced picture of the process of reading hypertexts.
  • A semiotic-aesthetic model for reading hypertext fiction

    • Interpretation
    • Emotions and sensations
