My research and teaching focus on the interrelations of American literature, media, and environments—primarily in the post-1945 period. I am currently completing my first book, Lines in the Dirt: American Postmodernism and The Failure of Technology, which focuses on a set of postwar works of American literature, visual art, and critical theory and argues that what most characterizes the late twentieth-century is not, as is often assumed, the threat posed to the human by technology, but rather that imposed by technology’s failure. In addition, I have recently completed an essay on the technologies of naturalization featured in an unfinished work of Henry David Thoreau’s, and I am working on an essay about emerging literary, filmic, and theoretical critiques of the contemporary conception of the-planet-as-network.
