I am Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies for the English Department at Washington State University. My research lies at the intersection of literature, media archaeology, and science and technology studies. I have published two monographs William Blake and the Digital Humanities: Collaboration, Participation, and Social Media, co-authored by Jason Whittaker (Routledge 2012); and Steampunk and Nineteenth-Century Digital Humanities: Literary Retrofuturisms, Media Archaeologies, Alternate Histories (Routledge 2017). I’m currently working on a multigraph — Deep Time of the Nineteenth Century — with Crystal Lake, Richard Menke, and Andrew Burkett; and in the planning stages of a new monograph on science fiction and planetary computing.
