My research examines and exploits the comparative perspective post-World War II literary texts, in print or digital media, provide on digital cultures. I study literary encounters with digital cultures in a variety of media – print fiction, electronic literatures, digital games, graphic novels, and film. I’m particularly interested in how such experimental, cross-media literary and artistic practices, in experimenting with narrative and digital textualities and poetics, register and creatively and critically reflect on contemporary digital cultures, information and systems sciences, and computation-based technologies in the U.S. My research draws on feminist science studies and systems’ theoretical methods.
