Today, I received official notification that I have been awarded a 2012-13 Fulbright Scholarship to participate in the Digital Culture program at the University of Bergen in Norway. This is a 10-month teaching/research award in which I will teach 3 courses during the academic year and dedicate the rest of my time to research. You can read a copy of my proposal here.
I’m interested in developing a critical edition of a work of electronic literature titled Arteroids (http://vispo.com/arteroids). This is an important work of electronic literature, written by Canadian poet and multimedia artist Jim Andrews initially with Macromedia Director 8 and later with upgraded versions up until reaching Adobe Director MX 2004 (version 10.1).

This week I launched a new blogging project: I ♥ E-Poetry.
Here’s a little background about me. I’ve created over 25 websites, blogs, groups, and other online spaces since 1999. For the past 5 years, I’ve maintained this blog which documents my professional work, including most of my course blogs. I use Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family, sharing choice morsels of my personal life. Continue reading “New Project: I ♥ E-Poetry”
I have been selected as one of 12 national fellows for the NEH funded Institute for the Digital Humanities @ University of Denver.
The University of Denver’s Institute for the Digital Humanities will offer scholars the opportunity to explore the benefits of incorporating interactive media into interdisciplinary collaboration and public dissemination of research. Fellows will be given training and mentoring in the use of digital tools for data analysis and presentation, social collaboration and authorship, and/or research production and dissemination in relation to projects of their own choosing. This is a non-residential fellowship program, although participation is required in two on-campus events at the beginning (June 2011) and end (September 2012) of the 18-month fellowship period, as well as in one video teleconference at the fellowship’s midpoint (December 2011).
Here is a link to my proposal for this Institute.
My doctoral dissertation, titled “Typing the Dancing Signifier: Jim Andrews’ (Vis)Poetics,” is now available at the Digital Repository at the University of Maryland: http://hdl.handle.net/1903/10799.

Starting on August 7, I will be the new Associate Dean of Assessment and Educational Technology for the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
Unfortunately, I will have to resign to my position in the Academic Senate, since being part of the university administration constitutes a potential conflict of interest. My heartfelt thanks for all the colleagues who elected me to represent them. I feel that as an Associate Dean I can have a greater impact in some of the areas I discussed as part of my candidacy to the Senate, particularly in using Web 2.0 technologies to improve communication at all levels of the faculty and administration.
So stay posted for more details and changes to my contact information, as I assume my new duties.
I just found out that I’ve been promoted to the rank of Associate Professor! Thanks to all the family, colleagues, friends, and students that have been so supportive in the years leading up to this evaluation. I couldn’t have done it without you!
On April 15, 2008 I was elected by my colleagues in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences to the UPRM Academic Senate. I wish to thank the faculty for placing their trust in me. I will work diligently to provide the best representation of the faculty’s interests and wishes at the Academic Senate meetings.
My duties begin on July 1, 2008, but I am always receptive to and available for suggestions on issues, ideas, or other concerns the faculty may have.
And be on the lookout for the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Senators Blog coming this Fall 2008.
On Tuesday, April 15 at 10:30 am there will be an extraordinary Faculty of Arts and Sciences meeting to elect a new member for the Academic Senate. I am one of two nominees for this position and would like to express what I have to offer the faculty of Arts and Sciences if elected.
