Personal profile


My research focuses on postmodernism, its implications in Gothic, sf, and crime fiction, and their intersections in considering global climate change. I am concerned with (literary) representation (identity, race, otherness, the non-human) as well as its implications in larger society. I focus, primarily, on the 20th and 21st century.  I am general editor of Otherness: Essays and Studies, and coordinator of the Centre for Studies in Otherness.
