I edit and write nonfiction.

As managing editor of The Public Domain Review, I commission our essays and collections.

As managing editor of Cabinet magazine, I am at work on a number of new books, issues, and articles.

My essays and reviews have appeared in The Economist, Times Literary Supplement, History Today, The Public Domain Review, El Món d’Ahir, ArtReview, Nemunas, Los Angeles Review of Books, Aesthetica, Hyperallergic, 3:AM, The Brooklyn Rail, and a few other places.

My first book is about why we sign our names.

In my academic life, as a lecturer and research fellow, I’ve published on Samuel Beckett’s obsession with pots, the territoriality of nightingales in Marie de France, biblical allegory in cold war cinema, and other people and things.

I am available to discuss new writing projects and collaborations: hunterdukes [at] gmail.
