In addition to ongoing research on digital poetics and interventionist media arts practices, she continues work on Global English and the Academy, excerpts of which have been published in The Yale Journal of Criticism and Diaspora.In the English department at UCSB, she currently directs the Transcriptions Center (original website) and co-directs the Literature and Culture of Information specialization.
