My research focuses on the role of mass culture and popular fiction in shaping our understanding of history and, in certain cases, in shaping history itself. I am interested in how materials that are only now receiving widespread critical academic scrutiny, like comic books, played a role in twentieth century history and stand out as markers of cultural change.
