Katie Kapurch writes about sexy aspects of popular culture and literature. As a scholar of the Beatles and other major phenomena, she offers fresh insights when it comes to the topics of gender, sexuality, and race.
Katie’s forthcoming books include Blackbird Fly: Black America Remixes the Beatles (Penn State UP) and Sex and Gender in Rock and Pop Music from the Beatles to Beyoncé (Bloomsbury). The latter is co-authored with Walter Everett (University of Michigan), the recognized expert on the Beatles’ musical techniques.
Katie’s previous publications include Victorian Melodrama in the Twenty-First Century: Jane Eyre, Twilight, and the Mode of Excess in Popular Girl Culture (Palgrave, 2016) and New Critical Perspectives on the Beatles: Things We Said Today (Palgrave, 2016), which she co-edited with Kenneth Womack (Monmouth University), the world-renowned authority on the Beatles’ lasting cultural impact.
Dr. Kapurch is Associate Professor of English at Texas State University, where she teaches courses on popular youth culture, mythology and fairy tales, British Literature, and, of course, the Beatles.
