I received my Ph.D. in May of 2016 after completing my dissertation Database Modernism: Literary Information Media. I am now a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow at The University of Tulsa and will be teaching Major American Authors 1850-Present and an upper level Special Topics course entitled Literary Information Media in the Spring. My primary interests are transatlantic Modernist and contemporary American literature, the theory and practice of archives and databases, and digital humanities more generally. My dissertation took a comparative textual studies approach to James Joyce’s Ulysses, H.D.’s Palimpsest, and Ezra Pound’s A Draft of XXX Cantos. I argue that these three authors react to the dramatic escalation of information and media in the early twentieth century by developing information management and presentation techniques that forecast the functions of digital databases. I am in the early stages of converting my dissertation into a book project adding a chapter on Jean Toomer’s Cane, and his reliance on associational aesthetics, form, and definitions of racial identity. I am the former Book Review Editor and the James Joyce Quarterly and Project Manager at the Modernist Journals Project.
My wife and I like to garden, camp, travel, and cook. I am a devoted Chicago Cubs fan.
