Professional Description

My primary area of research and teaching is late Victorian literature and culture, but my interest in science, thing theory, and techno-culture (the ways in which our use of new technologies transforms our world) often leads me to look for resonances in late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century popular literature, especially gothic and science fiction. I am particularly interested in cultivating a cross-disciplinary and historically-comparative approach to fiction that engages with scientific and/or technological discourses as a means of interrogating shifting understandings of materiality and modes of being in the world. My current SSHRC-funded research project explores the emergence of science fiction in general interest nineteenth-century periodicals using Bob Gibson's illustrated anthologies of collected science fiction short stories (part of U of C's special collections).
