Researching Constellations of Power, Technology and Affect in Contemporary Culture

How do technological objects, artificial and linguistic structures shape human perception, emotion and interaction? What is at stake when engaging in literary and cultural analysis today? In what ways is criticism a creative practice?  My work responds to these questions by pursuing research in Contemporary Thought, Cultural Studies, Literature and Media Studies.
