I work in the fields of rhetoric and composition, postmodern fiction, and film studies.  In the area of rhetoric and composition, my work focuses on pedagogical issues; in postmodern fiction, I deal mostly with issues of style and form.  My research in film deals primarily with genre studies and queer theory.  I regularly teach courses in all three areas.

Selected Publications

My work has appeared in the following publications: Quarterly Review of Film and Video, Film-Philosophy Quarterly, Popular Culture in Libraries, Genre, The Encyclopedia of Novels into Film, and CEA Forum.  I have an article in the book The Geographical Imagination of Annie Proulx: Rethinking Regionalism (edited by Alex Hunt), and I wrote the Instructor’s Manual for The Shape of Reason, 3rd edition. My book Literary Studies: A Practical Guide was co-authored with Tison Pugh.
