I teach modernism, sound studies, and film & media at the New School. I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Price Lab for Digital Humanities at the University of Pennsylvania, working on a project titled, “The Sound of Yoknapatawpha: An Acoustic Ecology.” I am particularly interested in the history of sound technology, its entanglements with race, and what these can tell us about the novel as form.


PhD in Rhetoric from Berkeley
