Dennis Yi Tenen's Homepage

Dennis Y. Tenen is a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and a member of the research team at Harvard's metaLab.

Currently, he is working on a book on the poetics of human-computer interaction, and has plans to develop an applied research program in experimental criticism, with an emphasis on data mining, text visualization, and content analysis.

Dennis is a former software engineer and a recent Ph.D. graduate of Harvard's Department of Comparative Literature. In September of 2012, he is joining the faculty of the English Department at Columbia University as an Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities and New Media. More at:
