My research interests include 20th century American poetry and poetics, materiality and materialism, media theory and history, indexes and indexicality, photography theory, digital humanities, the encyclopaedic novel, and Marxism.
I am interested in the ways in which literature is mediated rather than fixed and immutable. Though this research may involve formal considerations (like genre and critique) or material considerations (like print culture and digitization), it always recognizes literature as something that is socially and historically embedded.
Through the valuable experience I gained as a teaching assistant at Concordia, I have developed an approach to understanding literature that necessarily relies on discussion and exchange. My studies have also been enriched by work as a research assistant at the Centre for Expanded Poetics, a writing and research lab for the interdisciplinary study of structure, form, and fabrication.
