Kathryn 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.
