David Roh is Associate Professor of English and Director of the Digital Matters Lab at the University of Utah. He holds a BA in English from the University of California, Los Angeles, an Ed.M in Educational Technology from Harvard University, and an MA and Ph.D in English from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
He is author of Illegal Literature (University of Minnesota Press, 2015), coeditor of Techno-Orientalism (Rutgers University Press, 2015), and is at work on a third book project tentatively titled, Mediating Empire: Triangulating American, Japanese, and Korean Fictions. His work has appeared in Law & Literature, MELUS, Journal of Narrative Theory, and Verge.
He has taught at Old Dominion University, UCLA, and UC Santa Barbara. Before entering academia, he spent several years as a web designer for an Internet startup company. His foray into the IT industry lasted until the Dot Com bubble burst in spectacular fashion. He would parlay that experience, however, in shaping his research interests in new media studies, law and literature, contemporary American literature, and transnational Asian American literature.
