Interests: African American literature and culture, Afrofuturism, digital humanities (DH), the “post-monograph,” SCALAR and other publishing platforms for media-rich, purely digital projects. I am currently at work on two book-length projects, a DH project on Afrofuturism with the working title A Genealogy of Afrofuturism and a print monograph on the subject of the afterlife in African American literature and music, with the working title Soul Sounds. My first two book-length projects were print monographs, “Each Hour Redeem”: Time and Justice in African American Literature (2013) and Unnatural Selections: Eugenics in American Modernism and the Harlem Renaissance (2004). I am a Professor of English at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN.

I am a second-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Humanities at York University, Toronto. My research in Digital Humanities is focused on the interrogation of post-humanistic identity construction for online collectivities through Digital Activism in India through Web API use for Big Data extraction. My other project posits a computational analysis of Genocide literature in the exploration of trauma and memory structures within these narratives through sentiment analysis. I am a member of the Canadian Society for Digital Humanities (CSDH/SCHN) and York Centre for Asian Research (YCAR) . My intention is to contribute innovatively to Digital Humanities scholarship.

I am a scholar of digital humanities, electronic literature and “playable books,” digital-born, game-like stories in touch environments like tablets and phones. My appointment is half DH, half book publishing. I work also on digital pedagogy. I curated the “Interface” keyword in MLA’s first open access publication, Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities.
