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 aesthetic and political stakes of the concept of "noise" by charting the imbrication of techno-scientific thought with the French literary field. Elsewhere, his writing has been published or is forthcoming in MLN, symplokē, Cultural Critique, NLH, diacritics, Cahiers Georges Perec, and Radical Philosophy.
