I am researching how the Internet and digital collections of literature restructure the canon and influence reading practices.
The questions that drive my research are: How have online delivery systems, such as Amazon and Goodreads, transformed the production of a canon in American literature? What is the cultural impact of quantitatively assessing literature online without qualitatively critical considerations? How do we assess the impact of new algorithmic modes of producing value on the study of American literature?
