I'm an instructional technologist, English PhD, poet, and explorer of new media.
My doctoral research concerned modernist authors' use of transitional settings (dreamscapes, the sea, the dinner table, and more) to challenge social hierarchies and redraw the boundaries of the individual. In a similar spirit, I'm interested in pushing the formal boundaries of scholarship and poetry beyond the limitations of the traditional essay or written word. Digital tools such as video allow us to meditate on the materiality of subjects, generating knowledge beyond what argumentative prose can express. Here you can find my latest experiments in video poetry and scholarship in non-traditional forms.
