Images and Objects - Princeton University

This spring I’m excited to present work-in-progress at Princeton University—where I took my first courses in film, art, and critical theory. My talk will be part of the Images and Objects series, which brings in visiting scholars to speak about interdisciplinary projects. It’s sponsored by the Art and History Departments and the Graduate School.

What is Stereoscopic 3d? - Society of Cinema and Media Studies

I’ll be giving a talk in Seattle on Trevor Paglen’s Invisible Images exhibition, the history of representing depth through photographs, and way that photographic mages are used to train computer vision. On a great panel with Kristen Whissel, Leon Gurevich, and Daniel Morgan.



Virtual Reality - Special issue of Journal of Visual Culture

I’m co-editing a special issue of JVC on VR, with Paul Roquet from MIT. We have a great set of contributors including new work from Lisa Nakamura on about staging racial “empathy” in VR, a critique of immersive aesthetics in VR journalism from Lindsey Palmer, and a discussion of of what’s on the technological horizon with VR developer Adam Sulzdorf-Liszkiewicz.

Journal of Visual Culture

As an editor at the Journal of Visual Culture I am always looking for amazing new work, especially from emerging scholars. We also welcome proposals for themed issues from guest editors. Take a look at our submission guidelines.




At Stony Brook I direct the Graduate Certificate in Media, Art, Culture, and Technology, a program which more than one dozen faculty across the humanities came together to create. One of our goals is to facilitate connections and conversations with NYC-area scholars, artists, curators, developers, and students doing interdisciplinary work…so please get in touch!
