PopMatters interviewed me about my work as a Public Scholar at NY Council for the Humanities. I am available to speak at any NY state non-profit (at NYCH’s expense) on one of two art-science topics, one on Vladimir Nabokov’s theory of insect mimicry and one on artificial intelligence. The article also links to Fine Lines a beautiful new book from Yale UP about Nabokov’s “scientific art.” I have a chapter in the book along with some really outstanding lepidopterists and science writers. The interview also gives an introduction to my work in biosemiotics.
