I’m happy to say I recently had an academic essay published in The Folkloresque: Reframing Folklore in a Popular Culture World, co-edited by my good friend Jeff and our former IU professor Michael Dylan Foster.
Jeff and I first started working on our essay in this volume, about how Harry Potter treats folklore, several years ago, and I was delighted to be invited to contribute to the book, especially in such good company.
If you’re interested in the intersection of folklore and pop culture, it’s worth checking out. It’s available from University Press of Colorado, or from Amazon.
I’m pleased to report that an essay I co-wrote has been published in the journal Textual Cultures. Each collaborator details a project that troubles the relationship between books as content, text, and technology — for me, my bookmaking project “The Hollow“; for my fellow authors, an interactive edition of “Kubla Khan”, a remix of The Fall of the House of Usher incorporating social media, and an electrified altered text of The Owl and the Pussycat. I’m delighted to have had the chance to work with such smart, creative thinkers, under the guidance of the brilliant Kari Kraus.
