Dr. Justin T. Jones specializes in British fiction, poetry, drama, and essays of the long nineteenth century, with a special emphasis on the children's literature of the period. His debut article "Manufacturing Men: Boys as Commodities in Kipling's Kim and Captains Courageous" appeared in the spring 2011 issue of Victorians (formerly Victorian Newsletter), and his article "Morality's Ugly Implications in Oscar Wilde's Fairy Tales" appeared in the Autumn 2011 issue of Studies in English Literature 1500-1900. His current projects include studying fear and trauma in late Victorian Gothic narratives and an exploration of nihilism and game theory in Lewis Carroll's fiction. He has taught freshman composition, world literature, and British literature classes at UNT. He enjoys drinking vast amounts of coffee while listening to the operettas of Gilbert & Sullivan, and he is looking to buy a penny-farthing, if you know of any for sale.
