About

I am an academic and researcher who specializes in Gothic and Horror studies from the nineteenth century to the present. I am the co-editor of this collection with the University of Wales Press. I am also working on two book-length projects -one on nineteenth-century Gothic and theology (forthcoming from Bloomsbury Academic Press) and another on the intersection of Gothic and Horror media and Marxist politics.

One thought on “About

  1. Jon who? Does the LitCritGuy have a last name? Jon is a brilliant writer and thinker. (The process of writing is the process of thinking; something I learned in my legal writing career.)
    Jon is spot on about American politics and the Trump movement in the piece about The Id of Republican Politics. It’s the best essay about Trump yet, and the scariest, although the essay does suggest ways to combat Trump’s incipient fascist movement. I’d like to hear more on this topic and what we need to do to defeat this movement.
    Thank you!
