Bio

His interests in questions of American modernism, popular culture, and minority and oppositional responses to the American experience have shaped his research on the meanings of success and failure in American prose literature. In the coming semesters, he plans to teach classes in contemporary literary theory, the American short story, graphic novels, and the shape of twenty-first-century American literature.
