Stuart Moulthrop (http://iat.ubalt.edu/moulthrop/) is an award-winning artist, writer, and scholar of digital culture. He is currently Professor of Information Arts and Technologies at the University of Baltimore, where he teaches in the Bachelor of Science in Simulation and Digital Entertainment, as well as the Master's and Doctoral programs.
His electronic literary works, beginning with the hypertext fiction Victory Garden in 1991, have drawn widespread critical attention. In a front-page article in the New York Times Book Review in 1993, Robert Coover called Victory Garden "the new benchmark" for digital literature and named Moulthrop the foremost practitioner and theorist of the craft. Coover later included this work, along with Michael Joyce's afternoon and Shelley Jackson's Patchwork Girl, in his "golden age" of early hypertext. Later projects, including "Hegirascope" (1995 and 1997), "Reagan Library" (1999), "Pax" (2003), "Deep Surface" (2007), and "Under Language" (2007), have been subjects of numerous studies and commentaries. "Pax" was selected for an international juried show. "Reagan Library" is included in the Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 1, the first anthology of digital literature. "Deep Surface" and "Under Language" won the international Ciutat de Vinarós Prize, the former for narrative and the latter for poetry (ex aequo with Isaias Herrero Florensa's Universo Molecula). He has been a visiting fellow at the University of Bergen, Norway, and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Australia, and an adviser to the Information Technology University of Copenhagen.
