July 21: Happy birthday, A.

I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Rhetoric and Digital Media in the Department of English at the University of Waterloo, Canada, as well as a Core Researcher of the Critical Media Lab. The Department blends literature with digital studies and communication/rhetorical design. The city of Kitchener-Waterloo—location of the Google headquarters in Canada—is an international hub for technological research and culture.

I serve as an Editor and the Director of Communications of electronic book review (one of the first online academic journals, est. 1995), Editor of the digital review (a journal of digital arts and literature), and Editor of Reviews in Cultural Theory.

My name is pronounced Ligh (“light” without the T) Chee.
