In my “day job” I work for the Martha’s Vineyard Museum as a librarian, journal editor, and public historian . . . helping to introduce visitors (both on-site and virtual) to the history and culture of a hundred-square-mile island off the southern coast of New England. In the wider academic world, I’m a historian who’s interested in the intersections of science and technology with society and culture, who originally worked on the history of geology and archaeology and is probably best known these days for writing about images of science and technology in popular culture, particularly film and television.
I teach literature in the Department of English at Florida International University. My research interests include narrative theory, global science fiction and fantasy, philosophy of language, popular culture, cognition, spatial theory, science and literature, and biblical hermeneutics.
I am interested in American popular culture, particularly how it intersects with race, gender, and/or age.
Research interests include: Tolkien studies, Old English, medieval culture, Middle English, Old Norse, Old Irish, Celtic, Arthurian literature, Honors education, pedagogy, science fiction, fantasy literature, popular culture, disability studies.Homepage: http://www.unm.edu/~ldonovan/
