Personal Information

First name: 
Gerry
Last name: 
Canavan
Brief Bio: 

I'm currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Program in Literature at Duke University, where I research science fiction and modernity. My dissertation centers around the political uses of futurity in twentieth- and twenty-first-century Anglo-American culture, including online science fiction fandom and figurations of the Internet as a proto-Utopian space for free discourse and identity construction. I also have an MFA in fiction writing from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and sometimes make use of it. I blog almost every day at gerrycanavan.wordpress.com and Twitter @gerrycanavan.

Full Bio: 

I am also currently co-editing a special issue of _Polygraph_ called "Ecology and Ideology" and a special issue of _American Literature_ on science fiction, fantasy, and myth.
