Introducing New Staff

Thanks to funding from the Louis E. and Stella G. Buchanan Distinguished Professorship and other outside support, I will be adding new staff positions to ELL starting this fall. Joining me will be Vanessa Rhodes and Mariah Gwinn, both students in the CMDC Program. Vanessa, who plans to pursue an advanced degree in library science, will be working with me an other ELO Board Members on developing the interface for the Electronic Literature Archives. Mariah, whose interest focuses on video games, will be documenting the many vintage computer games on floppy, diskette, and CD-ROM that have been donated to ELL in the last two years and organizing the documentation into the special collection for the CMDC program to use in the Game Studies & Design certificate program.

Dene Grigar is Director and Professor of the CMDC Program. She specializes in electronic literature, emerging technologies and cognition, and ephemera.
