Bahareh Azad’s dissertation The Ethical Techno-poetics of Resistance: The Posthuman Agentic in J. H. Prynne, Tracy K. Smith, and Joshua Whitehead places critical posthumanism in dialogue with contemporary lyric poetry to articulate a definition of the ‘posthuman lyric’ as both ethico-politically embedded and formally experimental. She has co-authored Testing Liberal Humanism and worked as the editor-translator of the chapter “Persian Modernism” in the Anthology of Global Modernists on Modernism.
