I'm a scholar and critic who wants to understand media experiences from readers and audiences past, present, and future.  This fascination has taken me to study the language of smell, the work of recovered women writers, fanwork, livestreamed tabletop roleplaying games, and never-published manuscript fiction

I believe that technological shifts of the past illuminate our present, that book history and digital scholarship work beautifully together, that librarians and archivists are invaluable collaborators, and that hands-on experience of research is an important component of student learning.

My most important labor is as hype-woman: both for undersung forms of creative expression past and present, and for important academic work being done to transform our profession.
