Cities of Air: Data Visualization and Architectural Memory in the Art and Literature of Forced Disappearance
Jesús Costantino is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of New Mexico where he teaches and conducts research in American literature, film, and media. He has recently completed his first book manuscript, Boxing and the Racial Origins of Early-Twentieth-Century Media Technologies, in which he traces the racial genealogies of “presence” and “live experience” through the mutually constitutive forms of modern boxing and new visual media. He is now beginning work on a second book-length project, Under the Sign of Disaster Triumphant: The Colonial Legacies of Late-Capitalist Ruins in the Americas, in which he interrogates the ways in which depictions of contemporary urban ruin and natural disaster in the US and Latin America remediate the colonial past.
