Upcoming talks

I’m happy to share this poster for my upcoming talk at UConn (in English). If you’re in the area, I will also be presenting on April 8th as part of UConn’s Digital Media and Design department’s new Digital Directions speaker series (part of a celebration of this year’s Day of DH).

For those attending next week’s SCMS conference in Seattle, consider becoming part of the new Media and Environment Scholarly Interest Group (SIG). I’ll be on a Saturday morning Media and Sustainability panel, chaired by Nicole Starosielski and Janet Walker.

Last but not least, I’ll also be speaking at Drew University on April 21st (running a workshop for English and environmental studies students, but the lecture is open to the public), and the University of Maine (Bangor) on September 24–more details forthcoming. Please distribute to those who might be interested!


Slow Violence (link to Ant, Spider, Bee)

The editors at Ant, Spider, Bee recently asked me to pen something about the place of video games in the growing digital environmental humanities, and I’m happy to report that these thoughts are now online. The post is, perhaps surprisingly for those who know my work, strongly inflected by the latest hullabaloo over video game violence following the Sandy Hook shootings in December, as well as Rob Nixon’s rumination on the ecologically disenfranchised in Slow Violence and the Environmentalism of the Poor.

Please head on over and let me know what you think!
