Cameron is a literature scholar primarily interested in experimental modes of knowledge production. He holds a PhD in English from New York University, where he completed his dissertation “Setting: Postwar Poetics and Genres of Notation” that shows how multimedia experiments were a form of social mapping, reconstructing these sometimes illegible or neglected “notations” as a genre formation emerging from the mid-twentieth-century confluence of poetry, visual art, music and other performance writing practices. Cameron's research and teaching interests are in modern and contemporary literature of the Americas with an emphasis on African-American literature, poetry, art criticism, performance, and science studies.
