MemberMichael Gossett

I am the senior program associate for the Public Knowledge (formerly: Scholarly Communications) program at The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, where I develop proposals and review reports for a diverse portfolio of grants in the areas of digital publishing, data curation, digital preservation and web archiving, library reorganization, and community-based archives. I also co-lead the program’s emerging poetry initiative, which focuses on the preservation and access of literary audio archives. I am currently pursuing an MA in digital humanities at The Graduate Center (CUNY), where I study computational approaches to the creation, analysis, and preservation of poetry and poetry archives. I hold an MFA in poetry from the University of Maryland at College Park and a BA in English from Rhodes College.
