Director / CEO
Santa Barbara, California
I am a specialist in Old English literary studies and cultural studies, as well as a para-academic rogue publisher, with interests in poetry and poetics, intellectual history, ethics, affects, embodiments, queer studies, object/thing studies, the ecological, post/humanisms, and scholarly communications. I am the Founding Ingenitor of the BABEL Working Group, Co-Editor of postmedieval: a journal of medieval cultural studies (published by Palgrave Macmillan), and Founding Director of punctum books: spontaneous acts of scholarly combustion.
