About kavaloskilaini

I am Assistant Professor in English at the State University of New York Canton where I teach American literature and digital media. I am also the PI for the StudioLab SUNY Canton's digital media studio. My research explores ways that contemporary literary and visual forms challenge and reflect existing ideas of homelands, diaspora, and security in the contemporary conditions of war in the U.S. and Israel.
