Anna Watkins Fisher is an Assistant Professor in the Department of American Culture and the Residential College at the University of Michigan. Her research and teaching examine the theories, aesthetics, and politics of digital culture. She is particularly interested in how experimental artists and media interventionists forge tactics that test the limits of radical politics in contemporary network culture. She is currently completing her first book manuscript, Playing the Parasite: The Art of Complicity in the Age of Networks, which theorizes parasitism as an ambivalent mode of resistance in 21st-century art and politics. She is the co-editor, with Wendy Hui Kyong Chun, of the new and expanded edition of
New Media, Old Media: A History and Theory Reader (Routledge, 2015).
