Hi there…

I’m Aaron Gulyas and I’m a history instructor at Mott Community College, Flint Michigan. I teach courses in US, World, East Asian, American Military, and Medieval European history. I’ve also served as a part-time educational tech consulting and training for our Center for Teaching and Learning and am currently working on some special projects related to curriculum, “guided pathways” and the like.

In addition to contributing chapters to a number of volumes on television science fiction (like this one) and doing a good deal of freelance education related projects I’ve written some books. My first, Extraterrestrials and the American Zeitgeist: Alien Contact Tales Since the 1950s was published by McFarland and second, The Chaos Conundrum (from RedStar Books) were both published in 2013. The Paranormal and the Paranoid: Conspiratorial Science Fiction Television (Rowman and Littlefield) will be published in June 2015. I’m currently working on a book for McFarland discussing the historical development of some prominent conspiracy memes which, if all goes according to plan, should appear sometime in 2016.
