About Eric Rettberg

I work on twentieth and twenty-first century poetry and poetics, with a special emphasis on modernism and contemporary conceptualism. My work sees a tension between seriousness and unseriousness as a defining quality of experimental literature. I am also a committed digital humanist: I've worked on large archive projects and digital pedagogy projects, and my current digital work focuses on how computers can help us sift through large archives of recorded poetry. I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Virginia in 2012, and as a Brittain Fellow, I've designed courses centered on themes of "Data, Information, and Culture," "Contemporary Experimental Writing," "Digital Culture," and "Cultures of Appropriation."
