Biography:
Jen Boyle (Ph.D. English, M.A. Comparative Literature, University of California, Irvine) teaches and writes about questions of media transformation and theories of mediation. Her scholarship and teaching explore “new” media objects and performance; bodies and technology; and the virtual and material flows of objects and information through networks, from the seventeenth century to the digital present. A recipient of grants and fellowships from Brown University, the Folger Institute, and the Dibner Library for History of Science and Technology, Boyle is a member of the editorial board of postmedieval: a journal of medieval cultural studies, and Punctum Books. She has written a book, Anamorphosis in Early Modern Literature: Mediation and Affect, that looks at how the technologies and media of perspective in the early modern period offer us a different way of thinking about our own digital technologies, webs, and interfaces. She is also a collaborator-author of new media installations, including “The Hollins Community Project” (in collaboration with Virginia Tech). With Martin Foys, she co-edited a special journal issue of postmedieval (“Becoming Media”) that experimented with open and crowd-sourced peer review. Her current project is a multi-graph, produced in collaboration with digital artist and designer Alli Crandell, that explores mediated nets and the mesh of sovereignty between the early modern and the present.
