I regularly teach British Literature: Romanticism and After and Literary Methods, as well as seminars such as Modernist Visions and Revisions, Experimental Fiction, and Women and Modernism. I also participate in the HUMA program. In my classes, I aim to produce critical communities in which students can comfortably practice critical inquiry while honing methodological competence, writing skills, and knowledge of literary and cultural history.
In my book, Hope and Wish Image in Music Technology, I argue that music technologies such as filesharing platforms, streaming services, and media players, as well as many of their historical antecedents, attract unconscious desires for socialism and collectivity, enabling millions of people living under capitalism to dream of repressed social alternatives.
I have published articles on James Joyce, Walter Benjamin, David Foster Wallace, Thomas Pynchon, George Saunders, and Neutral Milk Hotel’s album, In the Aeroplane over the Sea. Some of these articles are accessible through Trinity University's Digital Commons.
