Bill Brown is a Professor in the Department of English Language and Literature with the University of Chicago, with a special interest in popular literary genres (e.g. science fiction, the Western), on recreational forms (baseball, kung fu), and on the ways that mass-cultural phenomena (from roller coasters to Kodak cameras) impress themselves on the literary imagination. He has worked at the intersection of literary, visual, and material cultures. Currently he’s working on a project called “Re-Assemblage,” which asks how assemblage practices (across the literary, visual, and plastic arts) might contribute to assemblage theory in the social sciences.
