Farley obtained a doctorate in Performance Studies from Northwestern
University in 2007, writing a dissertation that investigated the use of
digital media tools in performing arts curriculums at the post-secondary
level. At Northwestern, she taught undergraduate courses exploring the
performance of contemporary drama, the adaptation of fiction and the integration
of technology into live theatre. Kathryn’s research on technology
and performance praxis has been published in a variety of peer-review
journals, such as "Leonardo Electronic Almanac," "Theatre
Journal" and "Crossings: Electronic Journal of Art and Technology."
In 2006, she was named a Researcher-in-Residence by the Daniel Langlois
Foundation of Montreal, Canada, allowing her to examine the personal archives
of Sonia Landy Sheridan, a pioneering technological arts educator. Currently
a Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow at the Georgia Institute of Technology,
she instructs a wide array of courses in the School of Literature, Communication
and Culture. A multimedia portfolio of Kathryn's academic and artistic
