Hi! My name is Jason Smith. I am Professor of English at LaGuardia Community College of the City University of New York, a science and technology writer, a published author in science fiction film criticism (specifically the Alien films), and I also write about fantasy fiction (mostly children's, adolescent, and YA). My graduate work was in Comparative World Literature (at the University of Arkansas), so I am interested in lots of different things including languages, developmental psychology, and archetypal psychology. I am currently working on a book about psychology, gender, and star ships (or fairies or skeletons).
I will be starting a Wikipedia project on the Caldecott Medal and the Newberry Medal lists with my Children's Literature (ENG 280), Writing Through Literature (ENG 102), and Research Paper (ENG 103) students starting Fall 2014.
Please leave a message for me on my Talk page (the tab above) or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. My homepage is HERE.
I do not now receive, nor have I in the past received, financial compensation for my work on Wikipedia or affiliated sites.
