I am currently an English PhD student at Cornell University working on a dissertation entitled “‘Trembling Immateriality’: Bodies and Voices in Nineteenth-Century American and British Popular Fiction." I focus on the fundamental role of the material/immaterial and visual/auditory dichotomies in debates about what it means to be human. Specifically, I address embodiment and the problematic status of voice as both corporeal and incorporeal, a concern that dominates twentieth-century discussions of sound technologies.
