CURRENT PROJECTS

 

 

I am currently working  on a project called “The Pound Galaxy: The Unpublished Letters of Ezra Pound to Marshall McLuhan and Eva Hesse.” This project focuses on the hitherto unpublished correspondence of Ezra Pound with the media theorist Marshall McLuhan and with Eva Hesse, the highly acclaimed German translator of Pound, E.E. Cummings, and Langston Hughes. The first phase of the Pound/Hesse/McLuhan correspondence project (September 2014-August 21015) was funded by a DAAD postdoctoral fellowship and was jointly hosted by the Department of English and American Studies at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and by the Eva Hesse Archive of Modernism and Literary Translation at the Bavarian American Academy (BAA).
