As a student of digital literary media currently pursuing a PhD at Duke, I am investigating how technologies of expression become technologies–qua agents–of thought and discovery; how the visible textures and invisible networks of technoscientific new media affect and effect modern thought and literature; how the shape of a literary work–its legible topographies, its structural architectures, its digital immaterialities, and its transmedia contexts–influence its discursive function; and how well we understand the cultural and historical conventions and expectations of visual-literary communication.
I am a HASTAC Scholar and a Duke PhD Lab Scholar in Duke's new PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge. I am currently working on a Duke FHI Graduate Scholarship Initiative project to make and map Network Ecologies. I tweet @stargould and blog at texturalliterature.blogspot.com.
