Palmeri is extending his scholarship of multimodal composition history by employing data visualization, distant reading, and object-oriented methodologies in order to re-see the history of new media in the teaching of English in the 20th century. He also also is pursuing research projects on online writing pedagogy and queer video activism. Most of Palmeri's current scholarship is deeply collaborative (with colleagues and graduate students at Miami and other institutions).
