Todd works as a Professor of English and, formerly, Director of Composition at Defiance College.

In the spring of 2017, Todd gave the keynote address at the SAGES Fifth Annual Interdisciplinary Student Conference (Akron, Ohio). His talk was entitled “Birth and the Mourning After: Posthumanism.” He is also, with Dr. Christine Junker, currently co-editing a journal issue for Studies in the Humanities focused on the intersection of disability studies and ecocritism.

Todd published two essays in 2016, “The Hidden Architecture of Meaning in Chris Ware’s Building Stories” (in Disability in Comic Books and Graphic Narratives) and the “The Disabled Hero: Being and Ethics in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings” (Mythlore). Todd’s next book, a monograph under contract with Bloomsbury, will involve an ecological analysis of the films of Peter Weir.

Todd has co-edited Terror and the Cinematic Sublime: Essays on Violence and the Unpresentable in Post-9/11 Film and Sexual Ideology in the Works of Alan Moore. Todd has also published on Joel and Ethan Coen’s The Big Lebowski, Samuel R. Delany’s Dhalgren, Flann O’Brien’s At-Swim-Two-Birds, and Doctor Who.
