is a Media-lit scholar at Duke investigating technohuman(ist) cultures, network ecologies, augmented realities, info architectures, and digi humanities scholarship.  I am currently working on a 2-year Duke FHI project to map an Ecology of Networks and am leading an effort to collaboratively create a Museum of Non-Zero maps. I am a HASTAC Scholar, a Duke PhD Lab of Digital Knowledge scholar, a member of Hansen’s Speculative Computing (S-1) Lab, a Networked Researcher, and an avid techno-experimenter. My most recent publication, “A Bibliographic Overview of Electronic Literature” can be found as this year’s Featured Article on the Electronic Literature Directory. I blog at Textured Literature on HASTAC and on the Networked Reseracher. I tweet @stargould.

Talena Sanders

is an interdisciplinary artist, filmmaker, and second year MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts student at Duke.  I’m also an artist-in-residence at the Duke Ph.D Lab in Digital Knowledge.   I often investigate dress and culture, spiritual practice, and religious communities, and my thesis work is based around Mormonism in America.  I am currently editing a feature length experimental documentary 16mm film on mainstream Mormonism, a short film on a Mormon community built on prophecies about a gold mine in Utah, and developing a docu-fiction-autobiographical-epistolary-photography print work on Warren Jeffs and the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Colorado City, AZ.
