My current research explores the digital curation of electronic literature (e-lit) in and outside of cultural heritage institutions. These works depend on complex arrangements of hardware and software that can quickly become obsolete. Readers and writers also adopt and adapt cultural practices for engaging with e-lit texts that extend beyond particular technical dependencies. All of this requires new approaches to long-term care of this vital body of cultural heritage.

I'm interested in the development of digital curation practices and tools for cultural heritage professionals working with e-lit works and archival collections in libraries, archives, and museums -- but I strongly believe that these practices and tools need to develop in and through communities of writers and readers of e-lit. My research focuses on the intersection between creative communities and cultural heritage institutions, imaging new ways for readers and writers to have a stake in the long-term preservation of e-lit. This research continues work that began with my dissertation, which you can find here.
