Congratulations to Josh Tuttle, who has received his first citation.
The citing author, Stephen Olbrys Gencarella, is an associate professor at University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and Josh’s theorization of the Spooky from his 2020 article in the Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts forms the primary theoretical engagement of Gencarella’s article (the first six pages of which is discussion of Josh’s article and its theoretical intervention).
Josh adds: “Academic publishing turns very slowly, and one never really knows for quite some time if an argument finds an audience or not. As I had imagined (hoped?) when I wrote and ultimately published the article, I was opening a door and hoping more people would walk through it. Now they’ve begun to, and I couldn’t be more excited. (And just as a reminder to my fellow graduate students from the most recent cohorts, this article had its origin in a seminar paper I wrote for Chris Castiglia’s “Supernatural and the Strange” course in my first semester. The work you do is real work! It matters!)”
