MemberBrittany R. Roberts

Brittany Roberts earned her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from University of California, Riverside. Her work focuses on 20th- and 21st-century Russian and Anglophone literature and cinema, particularly speculative fiction and the environmental humanities. She is currently preparing her first book, which undertakes a comparative analysis of Russian and Anglophone horror literature and cinema focusing on depictions of humans, animals, the environment, and the ecological and metaphysical dynamics that link them. Brittany has published articles and chapters in The Irish Journal of Gothic and Horror Studies, The Spaces and Places of Horror, Plants in Science Fiction: Speculative Vegetation, and the forthcoming collection Fear and Nature: Ecohorror Studies in the Anthropocene. She is especially interested in how horror and other speculative fiction genres disrupt the human-nonhuman binary and in how speculative fiction reconsiders, challenges, and reconceives of our relations with other species.

I’m a second-year PhD candidate with interests in the 20th-century American novel, science fiction, and other brands of speculative fiction. I’m also interested in the intersection of literature and science, as well as the new speculative developments in continental philosophy.In addition to my blog on science fiction and speculative theory, I also publish occasionally on my other blog: http://borrowingfromthefuture.blogspot.com/
