PhD candidate Rebecca Frost has been sharing her scholarly research in several different venues as she completes her dissertation this year. This summer, she presented a paper entitled “Future or past?” at the first “Evil Incarnate” conference on villains and villainy, “Approaching Evil: The Societal Function of True Crime.” A paper by Rebecca on male violence in two works by Stephen King (“Razors, Bumper Stickers, and Wheelchairs: Male Violence and Madness in Rose Madder and Mr. Mercedes”) has been accepted for next spring’s Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association national conference. And her paper from the last PCA/ACA conference, “A Different Breed: Serial Killers in Works by Stephen King,” is being published later this year as a chapter in a collection about Stephen King’s Contemporary Classics. Nice work, Rebecca!
