Mél Hogan is doing a two-year research fellowship (postdoc) in digital curation in the department of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Colorado – Boulder.

In April 2012, Mél completed her research-creation PhD (Video Cache) at Concordia University (Montréal, Canada), tracking the enduring ephemerality of Canada’s first large-scale online video art archive: its launch, crash, and recent revival. She continues to be interested in the failures of the (promise of the) archive, data storage centers, feminist media archaeologies, and the politics of preservation. As a practitioner, aspects of these same issues are addressed through design projects and media arts interventions.

Mél Hogan is also the art director of online and p.o.d. journal of arts and politics, nomorepotlucks.org; on the advisory board of the Fembot collective; on the administrative board Studio XX; a new curator for the Media Archaeology Lab, and a research design consultant for archinodes.com.
