Educational Background

B.A. Comparative Literature (magna cum laude), University of Southern California

M.A. French Language & Civilization, New York University (Paris)

M.A. Comparative Literature, Cornell University



Marc's research centers on the relationships between literature and media, histories of technology, and capitalism. His dissertation, "Noise Index: Cybernetic Poiesis in Postwar France," rethinks the poetic and political stakes of the concept of "noise" by charting the imbrication of techno-scientific thought with the French literary field. His work—which has been supported by the Embassy of France in the United States (Chateaubriand Fellowship Program), the Mellon Foundation, the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, and Cornell's German Studies and Comparative Literature Departments and Society for the Humanities—has been published or is forthcoming in MLN, Cultural Critique, and symplokē.
