My current research focuses on the aesthetic representation and exploration of the cultural and political upheaval that accompanied developments in the sciences in early modern Spain and Europe. Titled ‘Estranged Epistemologies: Science and Culture in the Baroque and neoBaroque,’ and funded by a 3-year Insight grant from SSHRC, this project seeks to stage a number of theoretical and discursive encounters between contemporary and Baroque manifestations of Science Fiction. The primary goal is to understand the ways in which science and technology structure our cognitive and artistic relationship with the worlds around us. Primary sources include baroque authors such as Cervantes, Calderón de la Barca, and Zayas as well as contemporary figures such as Neal Stephenson, William Gibson, and Philip K. Dick.
