Deadline: September 19, 2021
The ELO is continuing its expansion of scholarly activity, creative, and curatorial practices with the appointment of five graduate and early career Research Fellows for 2022, each of whom will be awarded a $500 stipend along with a one year ELO membership. Awards will be announced during the start of the Fall term. In the coming month, we’ll be welcoming applicants who will be working with established ELO scholars and practitioners on a variety of ELO projects, such as the Electronic Literature Directory (http://directory.eliterature.org), CELL (www.cellproject.net), The Digital Review (http://www.thedigitalreview.com), the electronic book review (https://electronicbookreview.com), and the Next (https://the-next.eliterature.org/). Each of the Fellows will be expected to complete a minimum of two ELD entries during the term of their appointment. Fellows can also work with their supervisors to develop metadata for works in collections, creating content for the works’ exhibition spaces, writing descriptions of works in the collections or the collections themselves.
The ELO expects our Research Fellows to better reflect our members’ interests and backgrounds within the diverse international electronic literature community. We actively encourage individuals who are BIPOC, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, and come from broad geographic and language backgrounds to apply. Linguistic diversity will be particularly useful as our Fellows translate works in many languages from our growing consortium of e-lit databases.
One page letters of application, and short CV’s can be sent to the ELD project director, Joseph Tabbi (joseph.tabbi at uib.no).
