I write about modern literature, ecocriticism, film, and cultural studies. I have published ten books, including The Language of Modernism (1989), Reading Zoos: Representations of Animals and Captivity (1998), Poetic Animals and Animal Souls (2003), An Introduction to Animals and Visual Culture (2012), and The Importance of Elsewhere: The Globalist Humanist Tourist (2018). I write for The Chronicle of Higher Education, Times Higher Education, Truthout, In These Times, The Atlantic, Film Quarterly, Salon, and The Point; I have appeared on CNN, BBC, and NPR.
My latest book is Email, in Bloomsbury's Object Lessons series.
