Short biography: 

Daniele Giampà was born and raised in the city of Zürich (CH) where he attended Swiss obligatory school and Italian high school. At the age of 18, he started getting interested in humanistic studies and foreign languages. At the University of Zürich, he was mainly interested in finding a combination between philology and social sciences which eventually resulted in a research study of electronic literature as it is a combination of literature, linguistics and New Media. He graduated from University in 2013 with an MA in Italian and Spanish Philology and a Master thesis about electronic literature in Italy titled "Beyond the Boundaries of the Book. Italian Literature in the Digital Age".

From 2009-2012 he contributed as co-administrator to the online forum eLiterature & Net Art (2008-2012), in 2011 he launched his blog Electronic Literature Review and in 2014 he co-founded the research group Gruppo Giada (2014-2016). Since 2015 he has been working on the publication of interviews and essays and on the translation of seminal essays from English, German, Spanish and French into Italian to foster the divulgation, the analysis and the diffusion of electronic literature in Italy.

In 2015 he took his first course in the creation of e-books at the Italian software company Pubcoder and discovered his new passion for digital publishing. In 2018 he got a PhD position at the Kingston School of Art in London to undertake a research study on the aesthetics of enhanced e-books titled "Beyond the Boundaries of the E-book. Aesthetics of Post-digital Print".
