The “Introduction” to James O’Sullivan’s and my collection of essays, Electronic Literature as Digital Humanities, has been reprinted by the Electronic Book Review. The essay lays out the argument that:
. . . electronic literature is the logical object of study for digital humanities scholars who have, by the second decade of the twenty-first century, cut their teeth on video games, interactive media, mobile technology, and social media networks; are shaped by politics of identity and culture; and able to recognize the value of storytelling and poetics in any medium.
The book, published by Bloomsbury Press, will be released on January 21, 2021. James and I thank the ELO’s Editorial Board for the Electronic Literature series––Astrid Ensslin, Rui Torres, Maria Mencia, and Helen Burgess––for their guidance and support. Most importantly, we thank all of the contributors for their faith in the project. Their patience is much appreciated!
