I'm currently a PhD candidate in English at the University of Texas at Austin; I am working on a dissertation in Renaissance poetry titled "Renaissance Technogenesis: Embodied Mind and Sixteenth-Century Poetry." I currently work at Santa Clara University in northern California, where I currently teach Writing, New Media, and English.
I began my career in Renaissance English with New Historical methods, but I found that I also had an abiding interest in the intersections of technology and writing. While seemingly disconnected from Renaissance contexts, in fact, our current moment as a post-print society in transition can be seen as analogous to the cultural transitions in the sixteenth century. I will receive a certification in August from the Digital Writing and Research Lab. I've spent three years in the lab building a body of research, working for two years as editor of the award-winning website viz. My upcoming projects include a scholarly article on Visual Rhetoric and Digital Publishing, and a multi-media piece remediating sixteenth-century illustrations.
Research and Teaching Interests: Visual Rhetoric, English Studies pedagogy, Digital Humanities, Techno-criticism, Gender and Body Studies, Sustainability and Environmental Activism, Multi-modal Composition, New Media, The History of Print Illustration, Protestant Iconoclasm, Sir Thomas Wyatt, Images and Iconoclasm, Religious Studies, Shakespeare, Renaissance Women Writers Languages: Latin, Spanish, and Italian.
