Lecturer at Mälardalen University, Sweden.

Lecturer at Mälardalen University, Sweden.

I am originally from the United States but my professional life has been spent here in Sweden. I am currently employed by Mälardalen University but spent many years teaching at Uppsala University and Örebro University. My main field of research is utopia. I am currently working on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and writing an article entitled, “Harry Martinson’s Aniara (1956): A Menippean Satire for the Anthropocene”, for a forthcoming Norlit book on Nordic Utopias and Dystopias.
