I’m a writer and academic specializing in US literature, culture, and politics. Areas of interest include poetry and poetics, economics, modernism, contemporary popular culture, new media, and the history of literary theory and criticism. My essays and interviews (peer-reviewed and public) have appeared in boundary 2, b2o: an online journal, Politics/Letters, and elsewhere. Beginning in the fall of 2018, I’ll be teaching at SUNY Oneonta.
My academic research considers and evaluates the ways US cultural, economic, and political traditions understand the nature and function of creative human activity. Recent projects put contemporary and modernist artists in conversation with neoliberal intellectuals.
