Overview

Andrea Krafft studies post 1900-American literature and popular culture, with a special interest in science fiction. Her dissertation, “The Domestic Fantastic: Postwar American Fiction from Bradbury to Plath,” focuses on the intersection of the tropes of speculative fiction with pop cultural fantasies of post-World War II domesticity. She has presented on her research at the Popular Culture Association national conference, the International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts, and the American Literature Association national conference. Her recent work appears in the edited collections Home Sweat Home: Perspectives on Housework and Modern Domestic Relationships and Shirley Jackson: Influences and Confluences. At Georgia Tech, she has taught multiple courses about science fiction such as "Multimodal Mars," "Future Wars: Military Science Fiction," and a forthcoming course about Dune​ and multimodal research. She plans to publish in the future about the intersections between science fiction and digital pedagogy.
