Research/Career Interests: 

Eighteenth-century and Romantic British literature; science fiction and fantasy; literary theory 

In addition to a variety of articles, chapters, and edited volumes primarily focused on 18th-c. and Romantic-era British literature, I'm the author of the following books:

  • Eco-Theory and Annihilation: Film Theory in Practice (Bloomsbury Academic, forthcoming December 2024)
  • Engagements with Contemporary Literary and Critical Theory (Routledge, 2020)
  • Romantic Realities: Speculative Realism and British Romanticism (Edinburgh University Press, 2016)
  • Romantic Globalism: British Literature and Modern World Order, 1750-1830 (Ohio State University Press, 2014)
  • Walter Scott and Contemporary Theory (Bloomsbury, 2013)
  • Feeling British: Sympathy and National Identity in Scottish and English Writing, 1707-1832 (Bucknell University Press, 2007)

My latest book project is a new volume, Science Fiction: The Basics, for Routledge's long-running "The Basics" series. I'm also excited to have signed a contract with Lexington Books to write a monograph, Jews and Jewishness in New Wave Science Fiction, 1960-1980, for their “Jewish Science Fiction and Fantasy” series (edited by Valerie Frankel)...
