Dr. Stephen Voyce held a two-year (2009-11) SSHRC-funded Postdoctoral Fellowship in the MLC Research Centre under the supervision of Dr. Irene Gammel. Dr. Voyce’s research and teaching interests include contemporary poetics, community studies, experimental modernisms, and digital cultures. During his tenure at the MLC Research Centre, Dr. Voyce completed his first book manuscript entitled Poetic Community: Avant-Garde Activism and Cold-War Culture, and secured a contract with the University of Toronto Press. He began work on a second major project called "Open Source Culture: Poetry, Appropriation, and the Public Domain.”
In 2011, Stephen accepted a tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor in the English Department at Iowa University, a major US research university with an enrollment of 30,000 students. A part of his position was to build up the Public Humanities in a Digital World initiative, drawing on his already well established expertise.
Stephen Voyce is the author of Poetic Community: Avant-Garde Activism and Cold-War Culture (University of Toronto Press, 2013), the editor of a book of variations: love – zygal – art facts (Coach House Books, 2013) and the director of the Fluxus Digital Collection.
