Zachary Hyde

Department of English

I received both a Bachelor's degree in literature and a Master's degree in Literary, Cultural, and Textual Studies from the University of Central Florida. My current research interests focus on genre studies (particularly speculative fiction) and (post)critique.

I have conferenced on the popular-culture zombie and on comics studies, and I have published on metamodern subjectivity and on cyberpunk sf. For pedagogical purposes, I use strategies of (post)critique and genre studies, and concepts from film and literary studies.

[Speculative] Fiction is good to think with." -- Sherryl Vint

"Literary criticism has no method other than reading." -- Toril Moi

"As for ideas, everyone has them. What counts is the poetic singularity of the analysis." -- Jean Baudrillard
