Sumita studies transatlantic lyric poetry and poetics after 1850. Her academic projects tend to explore nexuses of the lyric, poetry and the other arts, cultural and media studies, and critical theory, especially around ecologies and materialities, and especially about affects, ethics, and aesthetics. She also writes poems and nonacademic criticism and essays, and she is the assistant poetry editor of AGNI Magazine. Here at Emory she's also been involved in a few digital projects about twentieth-century poetry, like the Complete Prose of T. S. Eliot and Digital Danowski. More frequently updated information can always be found on her site, and assemblages of things on her mind can always be found on her Twitter (see below).
