About

I am specialist in Old English literary studies and cultural studies, as well as a para-academic rogue drone-strike machine, and a 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 , and Founding Director of punctum books: spontaneous acts of scholarly combustion. You can read more about the philosophy and mission of punctum books at “Here Be Monsters: A Punctum Publishing Primer.”
