I’m the Journals Coordinator at Michigan Publishing, University of Michigan, a PhD candidate in the Department of English at Michigan State University, and editor of SFRA Review. My work and writing is primarily on sff and horror, though I consider myself a historian of American popular culture generally.

In addition to more than 50 articles, book chapters, essays, and reviews, I am co-editor of two books, the first on Star Wars and its defining role in the history of transmedia franchising and the second on whiteness and its figurations in American superhero comics, in addition to several editing projects on the way.

You can read more about my scholarship. And via the blog you can find personal updates, calls for papers, and the occasional mini-essay (e.g. a “how to” for graduate school personal statements), as well as examples of successful conference abstracts and panel proposals that might serve as demonstrative models.
