We recently had great news: we’ve received nearly a million euros to fund a large, European project exploring creativity in the field of electronic literature. The project is led by Scott Rettberg and involves researchers from a total of seven universities in Norway, the UK, Sweden, Slovenia, Finland and the Netherlands. I’ll be participating as a researcher here in Bergen, working with Scott, a soon-to-be-hired post.doc. and a technician. There was an article about the project in the UiB newsletter yesterday, and our research assistant Elisabeth Nesheim has made a wonderfully clear presentation of the project:
