Todd Comer

Todd Comer, currently on fellowship, is completing a PhD in contemporary American literature and film at Michigan State University. His dissertation, At the Limit of Subjectivity: Ethics, Birth, Love, and the Posthuman, traces the ethical limits of the subject-its presumption of beneficence, its diversity-and its metaphysical cousins (community, city, nation, and Humanism) and argues for a "postmodern subjectivity" that is essentially communal.

His chapters on Samuel R. Delany's Dhalgren and Joel and Ethan Coen's The Big Lebowski are to be published by JNT: Journal of Narrative Theory (Summer 2005) and SubStance (Fall 2005), respectively.
