The Spring 2008 Semester at Kent State University began with a sigh on Monday. I’m taking two courses: Queer Theory with Professor Kevin Floyd and World War I Literature with Professor Robert Trogdon. I’m eager to learn more about Queer Theory, particularly since I’ve already applied it and Gender Studies in general to my work such as the recent posts on Alien Versus Predator Requiem. Also, WWI Literature will help me pick up a bit more of the canon, and I hope to turn out a paper on H.G. Wells’ SF from around that time. I have high hopes for the semester–at Kent State as well as at conferences including the International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts conference in March.
