Jaishree Odin

Jaishree Odin has written extensively on technology mediated narrative forms as well as the role of technology in re-visioning higher education. Some of her published articles on electronic literature have dealt with the potential of the electronic media in depicting minority experience in multiple ways. Her current book-length project, Through the Looking Glass: Technology, Nomadology and Postmodern Narrative, is a critical exploration of shattered visual metaphors in contemporary literature which includes electronic literary forms. She is also the author of To the Other Shore: Lalla's Life and Poetry (Vitasta Pub, 1999).
Odin teaches interdisciplinary literature, science and technology courses at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. She also directs a major online distance-learning project at the university that was funded recently by the Sloan Foundation to increase access to higher education in the state of Hawaii.
