Leona Jones (University of Falmouth, Great Britain) is studying Performance Writing (MA), a cross-disciplinary approach to writing which centres on word as event/performance where language is a major, but never the only, component of text. Building on from previous careers utilising spoken word and academic researches in English Literature and scriptwriting, she is developing her practice across media using text, sound, spatiality and visual image. Actively seeking to highlight physicality, location and context - word/sound/in - Leona’s practice embraces continual questioning of definitions, placing physicality as central in the interrelationships between writer, word and world. Her cognitive interest during this intensive programme was focused on the question: How and why is audible literature possible in public?
The first edition of the Erasmus Intensive Program "European Digital Literatures" was hosted at the University Complutense in Madrid from June 25 th to July 13 th, 2012.
