Assistant Professor of English, University of Maryland, College Park
Lee Konstantinou specializes in twentieth and twenty-first century American fiction, with interests in postmodernist art and theory, comics, science fiction, and popular culture, as well as literary and cultural sociology. His recently completed scholarly book Cool Characters: Irony and American Fiction (Harvard University Press, forthcoming) is a literary history of irony in the U.S. since 1945. He is currently working on his second academic book project, "Rise of the Graphic Novel," which investigates how, starting in the 1970s, comics rose from the margins of American culture to the mainstream.
