Jonathan E. Abel is an Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature and Asian Studies at Penn State University.  His recent book The New Real (2023) explains how media became the link between cultural representation of the world and cultural influence on the world.  His current research examines microfiction and short novels posted to social media over the past decade as test cases for the question of whether labeling fake news can curtail its dissemination.
