Miller Publishes Article Exploring Animal Melodrama

Assistant Professor of English John MacNeill Miller published an article in PMLA: Proceedings of the Modern Language Association title “When Drama Went to the Dogs; or, Staging Otherness in the Animal Melodrama.” The article explores the nature and significance of animal melodrama — a wildly popular, but now forgotten form of nineteenth-century theater that included live dogs, horses, and elephants onstage. Miller also workshopped a paper, “The Nature of Political Economy,” at the second meeting of the Vcologies working group in Houston, Texas on September 15-16.
