Élika Ortega

I’m Assistant Professor at the Department of Cultures, Societies, and Global Studies at Northeastern University. I write about digital literature, (not necessarily digital) media, intermediality, materiality, reading practices and interfaces, books, networks, digital humanities, and multilingualism in academia. My projects include A Handbook of E-Lit Reading, an archive of instructions to read electronic literature works; No Legacy || Literatura electrónica (2016) an electronic literature exhibition; and Textual Environmentsmy monograph investigating print-digital works of literature.

I’m part of the executive committee of Global Outlook::Digital Humanities, and an Association for Computers and the Humanities executive council officer. I created two Twitter bots based on the work of the Mexican artist, theorist, and poet Ulises Carrión (1941-1989): @BotCarrion and @UC_Poesias_Bot. I often write for RedHD and _lleom_.
