FIMS Profile

Dr. Warren Steele

PhD, English Literature, University of Glasgow
I work principally on relations between literature and technology in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and at present teach courses on a variety of subjects, including a second year required course, MIT 2500: The Meaning of Technology, and three third year electives: MIT 3218: Technology, Democracy, and Postwar America; MIT 3224: Crash Landscape; and MIT 3935: Race, Ethnicity and Technology.
Beyond this, my research interests include: the philosophy of technology (Heidegger, especially); technics and responsibility; the politics of love, memory, mourning, and melancholia; film; critical race theory; critical whiteness studies; Marxist political economy; and media theory.
