Andrew Nance is currently a PhD student at the University of Georgia, where he studies the theory and history of media in combination with lyric theory, aesthetics, and political philosophy. His specific interests lie at the intersections between emergent technological rhetorics, conceptions of subjectivity within modern and contemporary poetic practice, the interwoven hard and soft systems of computation, and design.
He holds an MFA in poetry from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where he was a Truman Capote fellow and the recipient of a Post-Graduate Fellowship. Additionally, he has studied literature, critical theory, fine art and design, and has experience in web development and graphic design. He has taught at Kirkwood Community College, Victoria University (New Zealand), the University of Iowa, and currently teaches at the University of Georgia. His poems have recently appeared in such journals as Colorado Review, Guernica, Gulf Coast, The Literary Review, OmniVerse, Prelude, The Volta, and others. Some of his poems have also been translated into Arabic and featured in Al-Araby al-Jadeed. He is the founding editor of Company Editions.
