Brief Bio: 

Chris Forster is assistant Professor of Twentieth Century British Literature and Culture. His research focuses on the emergence of a market in mass produced "obscene" printed material in the early twentieth century, and how this emergence prompted a rethinking of the use and value of the category of "aesthetic" experience among key modernist figures. Chris's interests extend beyond modernism into literary theory, the history of the book, and "digital humanities." Chris sometimes blogs about TEI, text analysis, visualization, and statistically grounded authorship attribution. He explores these interests with his amateurish programming abilities, taking advantage of Python (and the wonderful Natural Language Toolkit).
