My Articles

My essays have appeared in popular places like The New York Times, Art Forum, SAQ, and Partisan Review, as well as in more academic journals like The Yale Review, American Literature, American Literary History, Novel, Style, Contemporary Literature, ADE Bulletin, and PMLA.

Although I prefer writing books to writing articles, many of my talks and lectures — in places from Japan, to the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown Massachusetts, to Kuwait — appear in print.

My favorite pieces aim at both specialists and general readers — like these from a series for The Chronicle of Higher Education Review that let me explore, in a conversational tone, serious subjects:

Animation in Today’s Movies

The Archive in our World

The Lure of Urban Destruction

The Buoyancy of Depression Entertainment
