Career Specialties: Zea Miller specializes in theory and cultural studies, semantics and semiotics. His research interests include Deleuzoguattarian theory, science fiction, structuralism, genre theory and philosophy, focusing now on how we recognize science fiction.

Professional and Community Activities: Miller is the project manager for the Center for Cognition and Neuroethics at the University of Michigan-Flint, where he oversees production of the Journal of Cognition and Neuroethics. In 2016, he published in Semiotica "The Free Slave Paradox," an article that processes the expression “runaway slave” through several semiotic models to examine its structural incoherence then explores the ways in which it is paradoxically understood, even so, as functions of racist cognitive frames.
