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.
As a managing editor of Arcade, I do quite a bit of thinking about new media, and often blog about it. I am slowly but surely learning my way around Drupal. I often use web applications for teaching as well.
Current research projects:
- Book manuscript in progress: Experimental: American Literature and the Aesthetics of Knowledge, 1880-1950
- Article in progress: “Difficult Stein”
- Article in progress: “Minor Aesthetics”
