Jeffrey Jerome Cohen is Professor of English at the George Washington University in Washington, DC. His award winning research examines strange things that challenge the imagination, phenomena that seem alien and intimate at the same time. He is especially interested in what monsters, foreigners, queers, inhuman forces, objects and matter that won’t stay put reveal about the cultures that dream, fear and desire them. Cohen is widely published in the fields of medieval studies, monster theory, and ecocriticism.
