I also prepare back-of-the-book indexes for authors and publishers.

As a scholarly indexer, I specialize in media and communication studies, general history, media/cultural history, gender studies, and sexuality. Because of my interest in history—and particularly in non-mainstream histories—I also enjoy indexing biographies and memoirs. I wrote the indexes for the following books:

Selected indexes
