Hello! I’m James Campbell, a former student of the University of Stirling and the Elf in this Machine. I first graduated in 2009 with a 1st class BA (Hons) in English Studies, and again, in 2010, with an MLitt (with distinction) in ‘The Gothic Imagination’. My specialist subjects were – and, albeit informally, still are – American Gothic, American-as-global popular culture and cultural theory. Through this blog I provide a commentary on the Weird, Gothic, Horror and Magic Realist texts in American/global popular culture that most interest me.
