Areas of Research

Popular Genres of Literature
Dr. Anthony Camara specializes in literature and science studies with an emphasis on prose fictions from the late Victorian period to the present day. His current book project, Dark Matter: Weird Fiction and the Substance of Horror, traces the evolution of the titular subgenre from its origins in the British Fin-de-siècle to its definitive statement in the twentieth-century pulp fictions of the famous American writer, Howard Phillips Lovecraft. His scholarly work has appeared in numerous collections as well as the peer-reviewed journals Horror Studies, Gothic Studies, and Studies in the Fantastic, among others. In addition to his PhD in English, Dr. Camara has a background in the biological sciences—he spent three years researching the genetics of sensory systems in the moon jellyfish, Aurelia aurita, and various other marine invertebrates—and long-standing interests in chemistry and astrophysics. Consequently, he is well suited to supervise projects in the fields of science and speculative fiction. And, as his scholarly work surely indicates, he is possessed of an unhealthy love of horror literature and cinema, enabling him to supervise projects on the Gothic and the supernatural.
