October 2014 FGCU Author Series

Congratulations to Dr. Kimberly Jackson, our 18th honoree in the FGCU Author Series of recently published books authored by FGCU faculty and staff! Dr. Jackson’s book Technology, Monstrosity, and Reproduction in Twenty-first Century Horror will be featured on the Library website during the month of October and displayed on a poster on the first floor of Library West in the FGCU Authors and New Books area.

Dr. Jackson is an Associate Professor of English at FGCU, where she is Chair of the Department of Language and Literature and teaches Composition II, Introduction to Literature, and a number of upper-level and graduate literature courses. She is also cofounder of the International Humanities and Sustainability Conference at FGCU. Her research interests include nineteenth century Gothic literature, contemporary sci-fi horror films, and more. She has published several article-length essays on Gothicism and Tech-Noir film. Technology, Monstrosity, and Reproduction in Twenty-first Century Horror is her first book.

Each month a recent book authored by FGCU staff or faculty is selected, presented by an accompanying poster, and featured on the Library’s website. Everyone is encouraged to view the display of our FGCU authors’ recent works. Any of the Author Series books in the General Collection are available for check out. Authors are encouraged to donate a copy of their book(s) to the Library by contacting their subject specialist.
