I am an assistant professor of English at Arizona State University where I teach early modern literature, digital humanities topics, and history of science. My research focuses on the long histories of quantification and narrative, including the ways they discriminate and disenfranchise.

Thinking with tools

Today’s list of tools to think with: Stephen Baker’s “with-animal” performance; imaginative philosophy; quantum physics and wormholes for literature; and Google Earth custom maps. Steep is one way to describe my favorite learning curves.

For those who may be more concerned with the “monster” storm – a reinforced shovel, a hairdryer for the frozen locks, and a tea kettle may seem more appropriate.
