Personal Information

First name: 
Corinna
Last name: 
Kirsch
Brief Bio: 

My research concerns analog and digital machines, intermedia and transcendent media, and the history of video art. Currently, I teach undergraduate courses on "Writing About Art" (online) and "History and Theory of Digital Media" at Stony Brook University, where I am completing a PhD in Art History and Media Studies. In terms of pedagogy, I emphasize a hands-on approach to analog and digital media into the classroom as a means for students to compare, challenge, and analyze the technological world. My dissertation is about the entwined history of art and technology in the 1960s, concentrated on the hybrid practice of artist Les Levine.
