Dennis Tenen Receives Research Fellowship at the Center for Digital Cultures at Leuphana University, Germany

The Centre for Digital Cultures (CDC), affiliated to Leuphana University of Lüneburg and evolved in 2012 from the research concentration on Digital Media within the Lüneburg Innovation Incubator, scrutinises this shift through research in disciplines such as media, cultural and social studies, through knowledge creation and transfer, as well as through experimental and interventionist media practices. It sets up a network and an experimental space, where partners from industry, academic research, and civil society not only talk and think with each other, but also cooperate and develop new concepts, formats, applications, and interventions.

Dennis Tenen's teaching and research happen at the intersection of people, texts, and technology. A former software engineer at Microsoft and currently faculty associate at the Center for Data, Media, and Society , he is the author of Plain Text: The Poetics of Computation  (Stanford University Press, 2017) and co-founder of Columbia’s Group for Experimental Methods in the Humanities. His recent work appears on the pages of New Literary History, Amodern, boundary2, Computational Culture, Modernism/modernity, Public Books, and Los Angeles Review of Books on topics that include literary theory, the sociology of literature, media history, and narratology. His next book concerns the creative limits of artificial intelligence.
