For my first ever post-Ph.D. publication (besides book reviews), take a look at:
Greco, Nicholas. "The Companion as a Doll: The Female Enigma in Whedon’s Firefly and Dollhouse." Sexual Rhetoric in the Works of Joss Whedon: New Essays. Edited by Erin B. Waggoner. Jefferson, NC: McFarland & Company, 2010. 239-247.
You can take a look at the book here:
You can also find it on Amazon. Yay me!!
