Dan Thomas-Glass

Dan Thomas-Glass is a PhD candidate in English at UC Davis. His research focuses on experimental and avant-garde poetics since 1970, with particular attention to rap music, language poetry, and the relationship of cultural production to urbanism. His dissertation has recently been described as “an attempt to make a formal reading of the traces left by the seemingly-crushed desire for collectivity that rose out of urban politics and practice in the Sixties and Seventies.” He is especially interested in the city as media and mediation, and the ways that new technologies arise within and against its soundscape.
