StatORec Welcomes Jordan A. Rothacker as Books Editor

S

We at StatORec are proud to welcome Jordan A. Rothacker to our editorial team in the position of Books Editor. Rothacker brings with him over twenty years in magazine editorial experience and a deep commitment to honoring the word in all its forms and expressions. Along with a background in journalism, in 2016 Rothacker completed a PhD in Comparative Literature with a dissertation titled On Cultural Guerilla Warfare: The Artist as Activist at the University of Georgia, where he currently teaches writing in the English Department. He is the author of five books so far, most recently the post-climate catastrophe future noir, The Death of the Cyborg Oracle (Spaceboy Books, 2020). Rothacker lives in Athens, Georgia with his wife, two children, two dogs, and a cat named Whiskey. With Rothacker, we add another point to the wide geographical reach and presence of our editors. 

“At StatORec I commit to interviewing the most dynamic and exciting literary personages working today regardless of whether they are household names published at one of the majors or unknowns producing at small presses. That same standard will be applied to the books reviewed. I’m very grateful to be here.” — Jordan A. Rothacker.
