Background and activities

My primary field of interest is literature's integration with history's changing media cultures. How does contemporary literature respond to (comment on and intervene in) a digital media culture in which it takes part? How does the literary expression of late 19th century media culture repond to the social, political and psychological changes brought about by the marvels of railroad, telegraph and daily newspapers? I believe that interdisciplinary engagement with such research questions can help provide better understanding of who we (think we) are and where (we think) we're going at the onset of the digital era.
