Personal Statement

I teach in three departments of SAIC: Visual & Critical Studies, Creative Writing, and Liberal Arts. In VCS/Art History, I regularly teach an introduction to the work of Gilles Deleuze and a series of courses on language as artistic medium. I also teach literature and poetics courses.


Current Interests

I am working on a pirate audio tour of encyclopedic museums, artist's books of various kinds, and essays in literary theory and avant-garde poetics. I have published widely on writers such as Hannah Weiner, Jackson Mac Low, Tan Lin, and others. My book in progress (as of summer 2013) is on Weiner and Mac Low, with interludes considering the work of Marcel Broodthaers, Adrian Piper, etc.—the project concerns the difference between looking and reading, among other things.
