In 2011, I moved to Karlskrona in Blekinge, Sweden, to take up a 12-month post-doctoral researcher position with the ELMCIP project team based at Blekinge Tekniska Högskola (BTH).
ELMCIP stands for Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice, a 3-year collaborative research project which ran from 2010 to 2013, funded by the Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) JRP for Creativity and Innovation.
ELMCIP involved seven European academic research partners and one non-academic partner who investigated how creative communities of practitioners form within a transnational and transcultural context in a globalized and distributed communication environment.
Focusing on the electronic literature community in Europe as a model of networked creativity and innovation in practice, ELMCIP studied the formation and interactions of that community and also helped further electronic literature research and practice in Europe.
The ELMCIP Anthology of European Electronic Literature was an output from the ELMCIP researchers based at Blekinge Tekniska Högskola (Blekinge Institute of Technology) in Sweden, namely Maria Engberg, Talan Memmott and myself.
The anthology is intended to provide educators, students and the general public with a free curricular resource of electronic literary works produced in Europe. It consists of hypertext works, video art, pedagogical materials on electronic literature and references.
ELMCIP also includes an online Knowledge Base mapping the ongoing field of electronic literature.
