GIVING DAY is APRIL 11. But you can make a gift now to support CSSH students and programs!

Part-Time Lecturer in English

Ed Steck is a poet with an interest in how poetry can make its self aware within other forms of writing, such as technical writing, science fiction, artists books, and eco-criticism. His writing addresses the speculative long-term technological impacts of humanity in a post-anthropocene world.

His work is informed by systems theory, the mycelial network, concrete poetry, forest networks, biodiversity, Star Trek, and information science.
