Publications

I edited the Winter 2020 issue of Modern Language Studies on the topic of “Speculative Horror.” This included writing an introduction to the special issue and one of its scholarly articles.

Since 2010, I have published a variety of essays and articles in both peer reviewed scholarly journals and popular outlets.

“All Over the Map: Locating Genre in Lovecraft Country” – Horror Homeroom

This is my most recent piece, which will be linked as soon as it goes live. In it, I discuss the literary origins in weird fiction and the gothic alluded to in the HBO series Lovecraft Country, as well as the way the series layers racial terror with the conventions of the horror genre.

“The Weird Time of Fossils: Irrational Ontologies.” Studies in the Fantastic Number 9, Summer/Fall 2020.

In its common usage, weird describes something strange or out of place, a break from the expected order of things. This disruption of order is also essential to the weird as a literary mode, creating a sense of disorientation in both characters and readers through encounters with the “irrational” and inexplicable. This article contemplates time as one form of order that weird fiction disrupts through two related figures—the fossil and the found manuscript—in texts by Caitlín R. Kiernan and Stephen King.
