Current Projects

My current research centres on representations of the posthuman in contemporary YA fiction. I’m especially interested in the implications for literary form of a shift from liberal humanist models of the self that tend to see people in terms of irreproducible essences to a posthuman model that sees the self as an informational pattern.

I am also planning a two-week, graduate-level non-credit summer school that will begin running in June 2020 as part of the Erasmus Mundus Joint International Master Degree in Children’s Literature, Media, and Culture offered by the Universities of Glasgow, Aarhus, Tilburg, and Wroclaw, the Autonomous University of Barcelona, and UBC.
