I’m an associate professor of English at Memorial University of Newfoundland. I’m originally from Toronto, and did my PhD at the University of Western Ontario. Though my main area of specialization is twentieth century American literature, my enthusiasms (academic and otherwise) range widely into film and television, fantasy, cultural studies, and the ongoing definitions of humanism. This blog is my space to talk about pretty much anything that happens to be on my mind.

    Good evening Mr. Lockett,
    My name is Lucian Gheorghiu, I am from Romania and currently I am studying Media, Culture and Communication at the University of Sunderland in UK. In September I will start writing my undergraduate dissertation and i have chosen conspiracy theory as a subject. On a brief search on google i have found this article of yours https://cjlockett.com/category/what-im-working-on/ . Considering that you have written your PhD on the subject of conspiracy theory I was wondering if you would be willing to supply me a word or pdf copy of it and if i would be allowed to reference it in my dissertation? Also, if you are interested, after i finish my dissertation i can send you a copy. I am planning to write about conspiracy theory and American hip-hop industry; I will try to outline in my dissertation that (as I have found until now from my brief research) that conspiracy theory is nowadays a product of anxieties and race and class inequalities in the modern world and use hip-hop industry as my case study. However i will also try to provide an academic alternative to conspiracy theory and research some evidence and investigative journalism articles that prove some conspiracies to be true.
    Thank you very much for taking the time to read my message.
    Best regards, Lucian Gheorghiu.

    I just want to be notified of your blog posts and couldn’t work out how to register. Hopefully this will achieve it. I was fascinated by your Trump blog; his future position scares the hell out of me and I don’t even live in America.
