Martin Lund holds a PhD in Jewish studies from the Centre for Theology and Religious Studies at Lund University. His main research interests are religion and comics, the representation of race and ethnicity in popular culture, and the role that the specific ethno-racial and socio-political conditions of geographical place play in textual production. His articles have appeared in a variety of comics studies, American studies, and urban studies journals. His other publications include the book Re-Constructing the Man of Steel: Superman 1938–1941, Jewish American History, and the Invention of the Jewish–Comics Connection (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016) and Muslim Superheroes: Comics, Islam, and Representation (ILEX Foundation/Harvard University Press, forthcoming; co-edited with A. David Lewis).
Martin is currently a Swedih Research Council International Postdoc at Linnaeus University (Växjö, Sweden) and a Visiting Research Scholar at the Gotham Center for New York City History, CUNY Graduate Center (New York City). He is working on a research project about representations of New York City in American comics and graphic novels.
