Research

My existing body of research considers the aesthetics, poetics, narrative structures and the socio-cultural impact of new media and emergent media systems.  A current book and audio project examines the phenomenon of podcasting and argues that it offers thoroughly new, but as yet undeveloped, registers of audio communication and community structures.

My research has also investigated the politics of historic emerging media systems, the semiotics of hypermedia and hypertext, narrative and digital post-narratives, the effects of digital radio in the US, and media legislation.

Also, I find myself most interested in the genres of memoir and life writing across media.  My own autobiography, After the Crash, was published in 2012 (Random House).
