Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the Stanford Humanities Center, and Lecturer in the Department of French and Italian, Stanford University
I am a comparatist specializing in Modernist literature and hold B.A. and M.A. degrees in Romance and International Literatures from the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen and a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from the University of Chicago. My research and teaching focus on the relationship between literature and technology from the perspective of what Franco Cassano called “Southern Thought” (pensiero meridiano), drawing on such thinkers as Antonio Gramsci, Albert Camus, Boaventura de Sousa Santos, but also Heidegger, Hannah Arendt, and posthumanist theory. My current book project studies how nineteenth-century and Modernist literature can help us understand contemporary hopes, misconceptions, and fears about technology and AI.
