  3. 4. ¤ Understand how creative communities form and interact through distributed media ¤ Document and evaluate various models and forces of creative commuities in the field of electronic literature ¤ Examine how electronic literature communities benefit from current educational models and develop pedagogical tools ¤ Study how electronic literature manifests in conventional cultural contexts and evaluate the effects of distributing and exhibiting e-lit in such contexts. 04 RESEARCH QUESTIONS & OBJECTIVES
  4. 5. In the USA, the EL O (Electronic Literature Organization) functions as a hub for practictioners and theoreticians of electronic literature. While Europe is hosting key creative, theoretical and scholarly practitioners, events and communities of electronic literature – it still lacks a shared research infrastructure. ELMCIP seeks to gather the multitude of practices and theories in electronic literature, existing in a multi-linguistic and multicultural Europe, in order to create a shared archive and research network. 05 IMPACT & IMPORTANCE
