Elit at a Glance

“Electronic literature are works with important literary aspects that take advantage of the capabilities and contexts provided by the stand-alone or networked computer.”
- Electronic Literature Organization
Below you will find some examples of what E-Lit @ SDSU looks like. 
 We invite you to see the installation Luck at the Digital Humanities Center, LA 61. Luck explores the issues and challenges related to the pandemic and Mexico border.
“E-lit as a form challenges literary aesthetics, constantly questioning conceptual “borders,” and this inherent quality of e-lit allows the form to complement the content.”
- Brent Ameneyro 

DH Spotlights

Congratulations to our own DH Core faculty member, Dr. Nathian Rodriguez (Journalism Media Studies) for being named one of the recipients of the new Presidential Research Fellowship at SDSU!
“This award is about creating space-and taking space-for scholars like myself who are #brown, #queer, #Latinx, #firstgen, who often produce research that flies under the radar.”
  • Dr. Nate Rodriguez
Dr. Rodriguez studies how media portray underrepresented groups, and his important work exemplifies DH@SDSU's commitment to Global Diversity. Check out the article about the new fellowship and the reasons why Dr. Rodriguez got it! We are so proud! :
