As a scholar, I am active in exploring what James Joyce might term the "chaosmos" of modern poetry, especially poetry written in various visual modes. As a reader and seer of visual-verbal conjunctions, I am also interested in the literary and linguistic phenomenon known as iconicity, or form miming meaning. I am currently coordinator of the E. E. Cummings Society, as well as serving as editor of the society's journal, Spring, in both its print and online versions.
