My first book, Charles Olson and American Modernism: The Practice of the Self, will be published by Oxford University Press in 2018. Two new projects are currently in their early stages: (i) a monograph on experimental poetics in the early computer era (1965–1980), and (ii) a volume of Tom Raworth’s selected correspondence, which will be published by the University of New Mexico Press. I am also closely involved in the development of the University’s Contemporary Poetry Collections.
