He works with Professor Stef Craps on the project “Imagining Climate Change: Fiction, Memory, and the Anthropocene,” researching the metaphor, symbol, and theme of “shelter” as it is deployed in contemporary climate change fiction and ecocriticism, as historicized by the cultural proliferation of the “fallout shelter” during the Cold War.
