Beyond the Blockbusters: Themes and Trends in Contemporary Young Adult Fiction is an exciting and much-needed contribution to children's literature--and to young adult literature studies in particular.
In this book, co-editor Rebekah Fitzsimmons and I gather together a remarkable set of scholars to explore the understudied and overlooked corners of young adult literature. Come meet mermaids, ballerinas, activists, and heroes--and leave with a better understanding of the books that have captured the imaginations of readers across ages.
A Long Way Down: A Delta Rae Deep Dive is an ongoing, periodic podcast in which co-host Rebecca McNulty and I bring academic theories and conversations to the music and paratexts of southern storytelling band Delta Rae.
Come for discussions of the Southern Gothic and American protest music, stay for the digressions about the intentional fallacy and Yankee Doodle.
