Adam Hammond’s research is in British Modernism, Literature and Technology, and Digital Humanities. His work investigates the dynamic between literature, technology, and politics. It explores the manner in which dialogic or multi-voiced literature “models” democratic modes of thought, particularly in the work of Virginia Woolf. It analyzes the relationship between independent production (small-press publication, DIY recording, indie videogames) and the development of experimental artistic styles. In his digital work, he collaborates with computer scientists to develop new literary applications of natural language processing.
