Putting together and hosting a digital media gallery show of this scope and for a national organization like the Modern Language Association is a large undertaking and, so, cannot be done without the help and guidance of others. The curators would like to thank, first and foremost, the MLA and, in particular, Karin Bagnall for her faith in us to develop a sound and useful event aimed at furthering literary scholarship in general and the digital humanities in particular.
As we build the exhibit and its promotion, we will be adding names and organizations to this site. But we begin by acknowledging Jonathan Tanner, a former student of Grigar's in the CMDC Program, for the creation of the logo and design of our website. CMDC student Gary Nasca assisted with editing the links and helping with the site's usability.
We would like to thank Washington State University Vancouver for ongoing support for Grigar's research into electronic literature and curating digital media and for The Creative Media & Digital Culture Program (CMDC).
Once again this year we are able to bring with us undergraduate docents from the CMDC Program to assist at the exhibit. Five of these students were chosen from among those who took Grigar's course, "Curating Multimedia Exhibits and Archives", during the fall 2012 semester. Of these five students, Setareh Alizadeh and Gary Nasca, co-curated 2012 arsTechnologika, the annual faculty and student exhibit taking place in December 2012. Three other of these students, Morgan Hutchinson, Jason Lee, and Evan Flanagan, served in leadership roles in the development and execution of that exhibit. The sixth student, Greg Philbrook, is the CMDC Tech and Research Support Assistant. He docented the 2012 MLA exhibit in Seattle and had his work, "Collection," featured in the exhibit's Student Showcase. All undergraduate docents have attended special training on electronic literature and the digital humanities in preparation for the MLA 2013 exhibit.
