Jennifer Buckley is an assistant professor in English and Rhetoric. She teaches, researches, and writes about modern drama, theater, and performance in Europe, the UK, and the U.S., as well as about modernist print cultures. Her current research investigates the complex relationship between text and performance in the twentieth century avant-gardes. In Every Page Must Explode, the book she is now completing, she shows that while the avant-gardes may have dismissed the dramatic author, they fiercely embraced the page, altering the status, form, and function of the text in ways that continue to impact both the performing and the graphic arts.
