Read about my fellowship in the NEH funded Institute of Digital Humanities at Denver University (IDHDU) in their website, including a beautifully produced video about my interest and passion for electronic literature.
I have three announcements concerning my scholarly blog:

I am happy to announce that this blog has been nominated for a 2012 DH Award in the “Best DH blog, article, or short publication” category. This is already a great honor: in addition to being nominated by my peers, the nominations were vetted and selected by a committee for inclusion in the ballot.
Now it is up to you to support the blog’s nomination with your vote– just click on the title of the posting above to go to the voting page. You’ll have to enter your name and e-mail, which will only be used to ensure authenticity and avoid multiple votes from a single person. The ballots will remain open until February 17, 2013.
I have also created an “About” page for this blog, included below:
I have been using Prezi recently for my presentations and thought I’d share a link to them, for those interested in different ways of using this tool.
My contribution to the ELMCIP: Remediating the Social conference has been published in the conference proceedings. A PDF of the publication is now available online at http://www.elmcip.net/story/remediating-social-e-book-released. To even get to participate at this highly selective conference is an honor, because it went thorough peer-review process. My final revision was submitted in June 2012.

Digital media is slowly transforming the way we read, write, and study literature, and literary studies need to embrace that which is native to digital media in order to stay relevant in an increasingly post-literate world. The study of electronic literature thrives mainly in the margins of the discipline, in specialized journals and in highly technical areas (such as the digital humanities). The problem is that many literary scholars and educators cannot relate to these discussions well because they don’t have the specialized training required. The field of electronic literature needs to move in from the margins of academia in order to strengthen the discipline of literary studies. One way to do so is to employ well established critical tools – such as close reading, biographical study, and bibliographic scholarship—and updating them with more recent media-savvy approaches, such as critical code studies, software studies, media-specific analysis, and digital preservation methods. My presentation will provide an overview of my current research and efforts to bring electronic literature and updated critical tools to mainstream academic audiences.
My guest lecture will be on Monday, September 17 from 13:15 – 14:00 in Room 301 in HF Building at UiB.
