I am a scholar of digital humanities, electronic literature and “playable books,” digital-born, game-like stories  in touch environments like tablets and phones. My appointment is half DH, half book publishing.  I work also on digital pedagogy.  I curated the “Interface” keyword in MLA’s first open access publication, Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities.

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.

I live and work in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Presently, I am the Associate Director of the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab (ETCL) at the University of Victoria. I focus on research facilitation — connecting researchers and partners, organizing academic conferences and events, writing reports and articles, etc. In this role with the ETCL I have the pleasure of working with the Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE) group and helping out with the coordination of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI). I am also an interdisciplinary PhD student at the University of Victoria, studying open social scholarship and its implementation (planned completion 2019). My studies have centred around digital humanities, new media, and contemporary American literature. I am especially interested in open access, digital publishing, and how text lives online. To this end, my work has appeared in Digital Studies, Digital Humanities Quarterly, and Scholarly and Research Communication, among other venues. I’ve given presentations, ran workshops, or coordinated events in Vancouver, Victoria, Whistler, Toronto, Ottawa, Austin, New York, Paris, and Sydney. Otherwise, I spend my time devoted to books, bicycling, yoga, friends, and exploring the Pacific Northwest.

My teaching centers upon English literature of the 16th and 17th century, especially the drama of Shakespeare, Marlowe and Jonson and the poetry of Spenser and Milton, but I also frequently teach the intersection of that literary archive with political philosophy, metaphysics, medical writing, affect theory, eco-materialism, queer theory and psychoanalysis. In a separate stream of writing and thinking, I work on musical subculture and performance. When I’m not doing those things, I also make electronic music with my partner in a group called Matmos and by myself as The Soft Pink Truth.

Hi! I’m the Assistant Director (Open Knowledge Initiatives) of the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab (ETCL), where I help run the Open Knowledge Program and engage in open scholarship activities across the research, teaching, and service aims of the lab. I’m also the Associate Director of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) and a doctoral candidate in English at the University of Victoria where I develop geospatial prototypes to apply to the study of early modern English literature. My interests include geospatial humanities, early modern studies, open scholarship, and research prototyping.
