Ernesto Priego Bio

Ernesto Priego is a Lecturer in Library Science, School of Informatics, City University London. He received his PhD in Information Studies from University College London in 2011, after attaining his Masters at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK, where his thesis was about traumatic structure in graphic narrative in Art Spiegelman's Maus. He was born in Mexico City and lives in London.

Priego has numerous writings on the topic of comics, dating all the way back to 1991 when he was one of the co-creators of a zine about Mexican comics called Hemofilia. While he still writes about comics, Priego's bio in Inside Higher Ed, where he's a contributor, says that he's recently "been focused on the relationships between technologies and multi-modal storytelling...[and] in the development of good practices in the creation and use of web-based tools for arts and humanities research." He also has authored, co-authored, and edited several books of poetry including, most recently, The Chained Hay(na)ku Project and The Present Day. Priego is also one of the co-founder's of The Comics Grid Journal of Comics Scholarship, the born-digital open access, open peer review academic journal dedicated to comics scholarship. He is currently the Editor-in-chief of the journal.

In addition to all that, he's a regular contributor to the Guardian Higher Education Network, has been a HASTAC scholar, an international correspondent for 4Humanities, a member of the Mexican Digital Humanities Network, RedHD, and serves in various international digital humanities academic committees, including the ADHO’s ad hoc communications committee.
