Jeremy Throne is a graduate student in the Literature Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz. His research interests include digital humanities, book history, literary theory, and nineteenth century U.S. literatures. His work has been funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities. He is the published author of a book chapter on the use of agent-based models for literary history and is currently writing the final chapter of a dissertation that takes the autobiographical writings of Mark Twain as a case study that explores the limits and possibilities for using agent-based modeling, sonification, and other digital tools to read literary texts.
In addition to his academic interest in exploring how literary texts and other cultural objects are made available in digital environments, Jeremy is active as a parent volunteer in many of the activities with which his children are involved and serves as the Youth Art Coordinator at Arts Benicia, a non-profit art gallery and instructional space in the San Francisco Bay Area. His approach to developing programs for youth at Arts Benicia is deeply informed by his academic training in the humanities and a desire to continue that training by working closely with many of the cultural, governmental, and educational stakeholders in his community.
