Who We Are

Joseph Donica (contributor) is an Assistant Professor of English at Bronx Community College, CUNY. He teaches American literature, literary theory and criticism, and writing courses. He writes about post-1945 literature, Arab-American culture, the history of technology, urbanism, and queer studies.

Leah Richards (editor/contributor) is a Professor of English at LaGuardia Community College, CUNY. She is the co-executive editor of the academic journal Supernatural Studies and co-editor of the volume Representation in Steven Universe (Palgrave, 2020), and she works primarily in the fields of the Gothic and the monstrous. She has published articles on Dracula and Romero's Land of the Dead, as well as reference entries and witty posts on social media, and, since 2013, co-authored theater reviews for Culture Catch. When not reviewing, writing, editing, or teaching, she thinks a lot about Marx, smashing the patriarchy, and new recipes for her Instant Pot. She collects eyeliner and cat hair, and loves coffee and Guinness equally.
