Emily St. James is a senior correspondent for Vox, covering American identities. She has written about anti-trans laws, the ways we are rethinking the American family, and the use of color in TV and film. She is a 2022 Hugo Award nominee for her profile of science fiction author Isabel Fall. She has also been the critic-at-large and culture editor for Vox. She is the co-author of the book Monsters of the Week: The Complete Critical Companion to The X-Files.
Before she worked at Vox, she was the first TV editor of the A.V. Club, as well as a freelance writer whose work appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Grantland, and the Baffler. Before all of that, she worked at a bunch of newspapers. And before that, the internet wasn't around, so it’s not clear she even existed.
She lives and works in Los Angeles.
