Welcome to my site. I’m a professor at the University of Texas at Arlington, where I teach in the Department of Modern Languages. My current writing projects are in the history of popular culture and comparative literature. I am interested in the ways that popular culture travels across borders, and how it reflects history and politics. For the books I’ve written or edited, click here. Some of my published articles and book chapters are listed here. One of my hobbies is art, you can see selected projects here.
