I study the intersection of performance and media, and the intersection of media and performance cultures across the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. I find the interdisciplinary and collaborative focus and EH’s emphasis on old and new media alike very interesting!
I am happy to help prospective students interested in the intersection of EH and the arts find classes, design projects, and think through research topics.
