The Electronic Literature Lab has added two new staff members, or “Mateys” as we call all of us in ELL: Ben Peterson and Sydney Nguyen.

Like the rest of us, Ben and Sydney are affiliated with the Creative Media & Digital Culture in the Department of Digital Technology & Culture at WSUV. Ben, who joins us as a Social Media Specialist with a strong  background in video production, graduated with a DTC degree in spring 2023. Sydney, a multimedia designer serving as Junior Designer, will graduate this fall with one. 

Ben’s main duties focus on promoting Re-Imagined Radio across social media platforms and taking over the video editing for the lab’s recent launch of Bill Bly’s We Descend The Complete Edition. Sydney will create art for The NEXT, among other projects.

Both positions are funded through donations to the lab.
