Anna Watkins Fisher is Assistant Professor of American Culture and the Residential College at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Her teaching and research 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 and Wendy Hui Kyong Chun
are co-editors (with Thomas Keenan) of the new and expanded edition of New Media, Old Media:
A History and Theory Reader (Routledge, 2015).
