Dr. Slaven specializes in writing on the obscene propaganda produced in France during the minority of Louis XIV. His work especially is in theories of the body as metaphors for the health of the state. He has far-flung academic interests however, and also has written cultural criticism dealing with the body in digital art, art criticism, and has recently joined as well an artistic collaboration that stages multimedia performances on the theme of surveillance. He is an avid amateur astronomer and deep-sky imager, an electronic musician, and a fly fisher.
