From time to time I have done public writing, much of it critical or analytical in nature, for pop culture websites. I think it is vital for critical scholars to contribute to popular criticism.

What you will find here is a collection of public writing, most of which was published with external editorial oversight. I have also posted a few essays from my Medium website. I have tried to group this collection thematically and offer additional context where helpful.
