Rhonda V. Wilcox, Ph.D., is a professor of English at Gordon State College (Georgia) who has been writing about good television since the last century. She is the editor of Studies in Popular Culture and the coeditor of Slayage: The Journal of the Whedon Studies Association. She is the author of Why Buffy Matters: The Art of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (2005); she is the coeditor, with David Lavery, of Fighting the Forces: What's at Stake in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (2002); with Tanya R. Cochran, of Investigating Firefly and Serenity: Science Fiction on the Frontier (2008); and with Sue Turnbull, of Investigating Veronica Mars: Essays on the Teen Detective Series (2011). She is also the coeditor of Reading Joss Whedon, forthcoming in spring 2014 from Syracuse University Press.
She is a founder and past president of the Whedon Studies Association, past president of the Popular Culture Association in the South, and a co-founding editor of Critical Studies in Television. With David Lavery, she started the Slayage conferences on Whedon--which have met every two years, starting in 2004, and which she is now continuing with Tanya Cochran and a host of other dedicated Whedonists (Whedonians? Whedonites? never sure...).
She lives in Decatur, Georgia, with her husband, writer/musician/photographer Richard Gess; she is the mother of artist Jeff Gess, who works at the Guggenheim in New York City. She has lectured around the world on the television series that she loves, trying to wake people up to the reality that television can be art.
