I’m Christopher Loar. I teach at Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA.

More content may appear here in the future, but in the interim, please check out my CV. Or have a look at my 2014 book, Political Magic British Fictions of Savagery and Sovereignty, 1650-1750. Or check out Digital Defoe, an online, open-source, peer-reviewed journal devoted to scholarship on British writer Daniel Defoe and his contemporaries. I co-edit this journal with Adam Sills.
