Hunter Augeri

My research focuses on artists' books, poetics, suburbia, and how and why we save things. Currently I'm writing about the practice of hoarding and its involvement in conceptual art. My dissertation is titled How to Save America.

I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of English at Duke University and a Wertheim Scholar at the New York Public Library. Occasionally I work at Printed Matter, Inc., and I am interested in working on any writing, researching, editing, or art-related projects.
