Research Interests: Victorian supernatural fiction, children's literature and object narratives, thing theory, webcomics and cartoons.
Teaching Interests: My teaching and publication history tend to focus on the 19th Century and fantastical genre fiction, from vampires to mad scientists to classic ghost stories. This interest in supernatural genres, and their historical origins, is most readily manifested through my interest in children's literature, which regularly offers us varied and diverse windows into the fantastic. I also have an interest in comics--specifically the emerging field of webcomics--and animation, both for children and adults.
