Countering Andrew Gallix’s suggestion in The Guardian that
electronic literature is finished, author Dene Grigar indicates that
it may not be e-lit, but rather the institution of humanities
teaching, that is in a state of crisis - and e-lit in fact could be
well placed one to revive the teaching of literature in schools and universities.
