Adam Bradley

Adam Bradley, BA (McMaster) MA (Waterloo), holds a PhD in English Language and Literature and Systems Design Engineering from the University of Waterloo and is currently a Research Associate in the Vialab. Adam’s overall work is concerned with the intersections between technology and traditional literary studies with a focus on early 20th century poetics. His MA research project, titled “Data Visualization and the Avant-Garde Aesthetic” was a digital humanities project completed in conjunction with the English department’s Critical Media Lab and the Engineering department’s Touchlab. His project investigated whether shifting the aesthetics of a given text can offer new insights into the study of its structure and how the integrity of that text can be maintained within this paradigm. His current work focuses on digital tool design for literary criticism and language visualization.
