ELO Directory Editors: Accepting Nominations and Applications – deadline 30 September 2009

The Electronic Literature Organization is accepting nominations and applications for two Directory Editors. The positions are part of the NEH-funded “The Electronic Literature Directory: Collaborative Knowledge Management for the Literary Humanities.” The project uses open source content management and social networking software to develop a descriptive metadata vocabulary for the ELO’s comprehensive directory of electronic literature. We seek editors to join a dynamic and growing team distributed at institutions around the world.

Editors are hired as consultants on the project at a rate of $3600 for 150 hours of work over an 18 month period. Directory Editors will receive training at an upcoming ELO meeting (to be announced soon). The Directory Editor position is especially suitable for early-career academics and Ph.D. students focused on electronic literature, digital textuality and archiving, and related topics.

We welcome nominations of suitable applicants, as well as complete applications. Nominations should include contact information for the nominee and a brief evaluation of the nominee’s suitability for the project. Applications should include a letter indicating interest and suitability for the project, along with a current CV. Final deadline for applications and nominations is September 30. Send applications and nominations, as well as questions about the position, to Sandy Baldwin: clc [at] mail.wvu.edu.
