Eric's thesis examines the use of myth in contemporary popular narratives. Specifically his research touches upon the changes in the use of myth when the sixties progressed into the eighties, and how that is still relevant today.
Important in his research are authors such as Salman Rushdie, Neil Gaiman, but also popular superhero comics such as The Sandman and a franchise such as Star Wars.
