18-19thC Atlantic Cultures (co-coordinator 2017-2018)


My current project explores literature as a form of technology through design. Working with an archive of manuscripts and blueprints from the 18-20th centuries, I am particularly interested in how processes contribute to the formation of normative technological concepts. I was a Copeland Fellow at Amherst College in 2016-2017, and my research is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada (2017-2019).
