Anthony Stagliano is a scholar of rhetoric and a film and media artist, whose academic and creative research concerns the relationships between technology and our lived being. His films and videos have been shown in festivals and galleries around the world. His feature narrative film, Fade, was released theatrically, on DVD, and on streaming platforms. His scholarship has appeared in Computers and Composition as well as the edited collections Tracing Rhetoric and Material Life and Rhetorical Machines.
His current research project includes a monograph and related artistic interventions. The monograph, titled Disobedient Mediations, examines creative acts of civil disobedience that emerge in response to new, digital tools of control—for instance, ubiquitous security cameras, consumer and police use of DNA testing kits, biometric scanning—activities that disobey, by hacking, subverting, or otherwise thwarting governmental and commercial efforts to exploit the interface of our bodies and networked technologies.
