I am interested is human/non-human assemblages, especially when investigating the developing publishing industry in 1800s England. I’m excited to de-center the author when regarding serialized fiction in favor of foregrounding the (momentarily) nameless craftspeople, transporters, raw material collectors, and machinists (among others) who made the entire process possible. And whose blood, sweat, and tears must have dripped knowingly and unknowingly into those serialized stories.
Media representations of masculinity, feminist rhetoric, new materialism, fandom, and popular culture are all interests entangled with my assemblages obsession. I am a devoted fan of Sherlock Holmes, and my fondness for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is certainly what led me to my research field(s).
