Jeffrey Moro

Winnemore Digital Dissertation Fellow

Jeffrey Moro is a PhD candidate in English with a certificate in Digital Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park. His interdisciplinary research bridges media studies, digital humanities, and the environmental humanities to study how media technologies facilitate our cultural understanding of the natural world. His dissertation, "Atmospheric Media: Computation and the Environmental Imagination," explores how artists, technologists, and critics imagine digital media in terms of atmospheres, both literal and otherwise—and how in turn, these media atmospheres condition the possibilities for sustainable human life on our planet. His writing has appeared or will soon appear in *Amodern*, *Media Fields*, *Qui Parle*, and the *Los Angeles Review of Books*. Past lives include work as site manager for *Romantic Circles*, a born-digital journal of Romantic literature, and as Post-Baccalaureate Resident with Five College Digital Humanities, a Mellon-funded DH program at the Five Colleges of Western Massachusetts. He holds BAs in English and Theater & Dance from Amherst College.
