Graduate and Teaching Fellow

Sean DiLeonardi's research approaches the modernist and postwar American novel through the methodologies of media and technology studies, with an appreciation for the field's rootedness in critical theory. These interests extend beyond the novel as medial object through the genre's dependencies on and associations with parallel media systems (such as the electric grid), writing technologies (from typewriters to word processors), and scientific theory.
