Hi, I’m Charlie Gleek, and I am a doctoral student in Comparative Studies at Florida Atlantic University. My project explores the political economy of literature and print cultures, with an explicit focus on little magazines, printing communities, and book arts. I also have a keen interest in the representation of work and labor themes in literature and art, the global production, distribution, and consumption of short nonfiction prose, and the use of quantitative literary analysis and other forms of digital humanities scholarship. I currently teach courses in college writing in the Department of English, work in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters Advanced Media Production Lab, and have a lengthy background in teaching and research in humanities and social sciences at the graduate, undergraduate, and secondary level.
