Biography

Mark Dery is a cultural critic. He coined the term ‘Afrofuturism,’ popularised the concept of ‘culture jamming,’ taught at Yale and NYU, and has published widely on pop culture, the media, and on the mythologies (and pathologies) of American life. His books include <i>Flame Wars</i>, a seminal anthology of writings on digital culture; <i>Escape Velocity: Cyberculture at the end of the century, The Pyrotechnic Insanitarium: American Culture on the Brink,</i> and the essay collection, <i>I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts: Drive-by Essays on American Dread, American Dreams</i>. Like Gorey, his mission in life is ‘to make everybody as uneasy as possible.’
