About

Robert Wood finished his PhD in Comparative Literature at the University of California, Irvine in 2014 and is looking to find a full time academic position.  His dissertation focused on the shifting aesthetics of feminist science fiction over the 20th Century, which fits in with his interest in the intersection of aesthetic movements with radical political movements. He is also interested in cultural studies, historical materialism, feminism, literary criticism, and a variety of other topics.  While involved in these academic pursuits, he has also been involved in several activist projects, ranging from reform efforts in his union local to opposition to the sanctions in Iraq, and other projects.
