Warmest of thanks must go to Andy Jackson for his posts over the last few weeks. This month our guest is Anna Gibbs.
Professor Anna Gibbs teaches at the University of Western Sydney, Australia and writes across the fields of textual, media and cultural studies with a particular focus on affect theory, mimetic communication and fictocriticism. She has recently completed an ARC Discovery Grant with Maria Angel (UWS) and PI Professor Joseph Tabbi (University of Illinois, Chicago), entitled: “Creative Nation: writers and writing in the image culture”. The project includes the construction of ADELTA (the Australian Directory of Electronic Literature and Text-based Art. Gibbs’ 2010 ISL-HCA-funded International Roundtable founded CELL (Consortium for Electronic Literature) to establish interoperability between international database projects. She is also an experimental writer who has published and performed her work widely, and who often collaborates with visual artists.
