As a CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr. Henry Alexander Wermer-Colan will develop his own research and contribute to digital scholarship outreach during his two-year appointment. Alex holds an M.A. in the Humanities from the University of Chicago and a Ph.D. in English from the Graduate Center, City University of New York. His research reconsiders a decadent lineage in Euro-American literature as a counter-discourse to an increasingly cynical imperial ideology in the twentieth-century. His current work explores the potential of digital tools for rhetorical and ideological analysis, both of primary sources like avant-garde works of literature and, secondary sources, such as reviews of post-1968 war films. Alex runs workshops for the DSC on computational methods of interpretation, while offering consultations, and developing research projects, based around the Center’s growing corpus of digitized twentieth-century canonical novels and science fiction.
