Hi Willard,

My proposed doctoral research project entails the digitisation of  
French texts by
Egyptian-French Jewish writer Edmond Jabès (1912-1991), positioning  
him as
potentially prefiguring later forms of hypertext/digital fiction and  
poetry due to the
non-linear nature of his work. It's provisionally titled 'Edmond  
Jabès's "Exploded", "Infinite" Book: Prefiguring Cyberculture?',
and also deals with Jabès's highly contemporary concept of 'the book'  
in relation to
both digital poetry and the changing forms of publishing today (incl.  
the future of the book).

I'll be starting this project next year at Flinders University, South  

What are the 'local purposes' you mention?
