* I am currently researching how comics became graphic novels in the long 1970s. This work has been underpinned by an AHRC Early Career Research Fellowship (2014-16). You can read more about the project on my blog: http://blogs.exeter.ac.uk/1970sgraphicnovels/

* I am also exploring cultural responses to alternative American psychotherapies of the1970s. 

* My most recent publication is the co-authored article "Tommy, Primal Therapy, and the Countercultural Critique of 'Sick Society' and 'Cripple Psychology'" (published in the Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies in 2015)
