My translation of the last major work by the seminal French film theorist Christian Metz was published early in 2016. I regularly publish articles in media archaeology, digital media, film studies, Science and Technology Studies, and related fields. I am also the author of a 2007 monograph on the Field Day Theatre and Publishing Company.
