My area of specialty is nineteenth and twentieth century American literature, especially the period around 1900. I am broadly interested in questions of epistemology, gender, history of science, and poetics, and all of my current research projects deal with one or more of these themes in some capacity. I am also very much interested in media studies, childhood, feminist history, and visual culture.
During my three-year tenure as a managing editor at Arcade, I did quite a bit of thinking about new media, and continue to blog about it. Despite my reservations about the term, I sometimes answer to the disciplinary label "digital humanist." I maintain a love-hate relationship with Drupal.
Some current research projects:
- Book manuscript: Experimental: American Literature and the Aesthetics of Knowledge, 1880-1950
- Article: "Minor Aesthetics; or, Raised by Wolves"
- Article: "The Steinese Room"
Apart from my blog, some of my writing is available online.
