I teach Visual & Critical Studies, Art History, Theory & Criticism, and Liberal Arts. 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. I have taught in the Writing Program at SAIC, the MFA Program in the School of Art and Art History at the University of Illinois, Chicago, the English Language & Literature Department of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, The Liberal Arts Program at the University of St. Catherine, Minneapolis, and the English Department of SUNY, Buffalo. I am a poet-critic who also makes artist books, performances, and text-sound works. In 1998 I founded Kenning Editions. From 2015–2017, I co-curated the Festival of Poets Theater in Chicago.
