World of Antebellum America: A Daily Life Encyclopedia
I have had a great response to the calls for this encyclopedia to be published by ABC-Clio. Yet I am still looking for authors for a few entries. Please let me know if you interested in writing anyone of these entries. This is an exciting project, which will be turned over to the publisher next summer.
Please contact me, Dr. Alexandra Kindell, at email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

The critically acclaimed film Ex_Machina (Dir. Alex Garland, 2015) has attracted the attention of both those that study literature and culture as well as those in the sciences whose interests lie in cybernetics, neural networks, and artificial intelligence. That is to say, the film has sparked interest throughout various fields of study and has come to be a reference point in the rhetorics of researchers from various backgrounds.
