I am a Professor of English at LMU, where I teach courses in literary theory and interdisciplinary topics like Nothing, Wonder, Time, and Chaos. My research interests include geo-aesthetics and -philosophy, stones and gardens, and constraint-based writing. I co-edit SubStance (theory/lit journal) and maintain a garden/blog The Petriverse of Pierre Jardin.
I presented “Stone is the New Green,” a project including stone installations and a talk, in Copenhagen in 2018. Stone is the New Green
A collaborative reading with author David Mitchell at a conference on his work at University of St. Andrews resulted in work including a co-authored story that will come out next year. See the video here.
