    Hi,
    Some more information about Jesper Olsson. He has already finished and successfully defended his PhD in Comparative Literature. It is not on digital literature; the title is “Alfabetets anvā€°ndning: Konkret poesi och poetisk artefaktion i svenskt 1960-tal”
    Article about it (in Swedish) from Svd: http://www.svd.se/dynamiskt/kultur/did_9999872.asp

    But it is great that ELO and digital literature is getting some (mainstream) press in Sweden. I would be interested to know if the Collection site had a surge of Swedish visitors?
