Short description: 

The Electronic Literature Research Group at the University of Bergen's (UiB) Department of Linguistic, Literary, and Aesthetic Studies formed in 2011 and is focused specifically on e-lit, digital art, and other research related to digital-media aesthetics. We collaborate with (and originated in) the Digital Culture Research Group. We hope that this group will extend beyond our colleagues in the program at UiB and include researchers and writers interested in these topics from elsewhere, other UiB departments, at other institutions in Bergen (and the world). 

Please contact Scott Rettberg (research group leader) if you are interested in participating in the group or simply would like to drop by or learn more.
