Join us at Gallatin for the second in a series of conversations about what it means to do interdisciplinary research in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) fields, with Allison Parrish. Parrish is a computer programmer, poet, and game designer whose teaching and practice address the unusual phenomena that blossom when language and computers meet. She has recently given talks on computer-generated poetry at the Electronic Literature Organization conference, !!Con, Alt-AI, SXSW Interactive and Eyeo. From 2014 to 2016, Allison was the Digital Creative Writer-in-Residence at Fordham University, and has recently been a research resident at DBRS Innovation Labs, a Processing Foundation fellow, and a visiting artist at the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at CMU. Allison holds a master’s degree from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, where she currently teaches.
