About Me

Nicole Lobdell is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of English in 19th-century British Literature at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana.  Previously, she was a Marion L. Brittain Fellow in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in Atlanta, GA.

Her longer projects in the works include a Broadview edition of H. G. Wells's The Invisible Man (forthcoming spring 2018) and a book on nineteenth-century literature and material culture titled Victorian Stuff: A History of Hoarding.

Currently, she is editing a special issue of Science Fiction Studies for the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (July 2018) and finishing a book chapter on filmic adaptations of H.G. Wells's The Invisible Man.

She has edited special issues of Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies on "Illustration and Gender: Drawing the Nineteenth Century" (July 2015) and Nineteenth-Century Contexts on "INCS 2015 Mobilities" (December 2015), and has published book chapters on Mary Shelley's short stories (October 2016), and the adaptations of William Blake's poetry in Appalachian music (forthcoming). She is also at work on a solicited Object Lesson for The Atlantic on the wonderfully kitschy tradition of the Yule Log Video, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2016.

Her other research interests include material culture studies, visual culture studies, science fiction, 19th-century technology and science, Gothic literature, digital humanities, women writers, and early-American literature.
