        Subject: Fulbright in Digital Culture at the University of Bergen

If you’re a US citizen who would be interested in spending the 2023/24
academic year in Europe, please consider applying for the Fulbright in
Digital Culture at the University of Bergen. It’s a teaching Fulbright,
where you would spend about half your time teaching and the rest on your
research. Application deadline is 15 September:

We have a very active research environment in Digital Culture, with
weekly research group meetings that usually gather around 12-20
researchers with a balance of senior and junior scholars. We emphasise
inclusivity and really value having a collaborative environment where
people actually talk about their research with each other. We have an
ERC project on machine vision in everyday life 
just got funding for a large project on “Extending Digital
(about storytelling using AI, VR and more), host the ELMCIP database of
electronic literature
and are finalists for a Center for Research Excellence on Digital Narrative 
that we’ll be hearing the results of this month, we hope. There are lots of 
other interesting research groups in Bergen too, ranging from the 
MediaFutures Center
which combines research with innovation in industry collaborations, and 
 which coordinates AI research across all faculties. Every spring our 
university hosts the Holberg Prize
which is the humanities and social science version of a Nobel Prize, 
and there are big events and seminars with that year’s laureate. Bergen is 
Norway’s “gateway to the fjords”
surrounded by seven mountains, and offers amazing natural beauty, a 
walkable city and lots of cultural activities, including Piksel 
<>, an open source art festival held every November, 
and a dedicated center for electronic art

Feel free to get in touch if you have questions.
