George P. Landow

George Landow is an important force in the world of hypertext scholarship. With Paul Delany, he edited Hypermedia and Literary Studies, a collection which gathers together many authors of relevance to this study. See also our discussion of Landow's overview types and hypertext rhetoric.

Landow defines hypertext as "the use of the computer to transcend the linear, bounded and fixed qualities of the traditional written text" (3).

Now, George P. Landow is Professor of English and Art History, Brown University, and Shaw Professor of English and Digital Culture at the National University of Singapore.

Prof. Landow is also my teacher for Studies in New Media: Hypertext at National Unviersity of Singapore, where he is a shaw professor in School of Computing. Some of the materials of this web site comes from his book "Hypertext 2.0".
