Bio

My specializations include twentieth-century American literature, transatlantic modernism, women and literature, and American ethnic literature. My research focuses on identity politics, namely the politics inherent in identity constructions, and responses to trauma in modern and contemporary literature. Much of my research treats social justice issues, particularly in connection with bodies marked by gender, race, and trauma. As a scholar and teacher, I aim to bring the work and ideas that invigorate my research into the classroom. Students in my classes gain new perspectives and insight because they learn to consider and analyze texts and contexts, and, by extension, themselves, their world, and people different from themselves. Ultimately, my goals are to teach students how to approach, understand, and appreciate literary texts, difficult ideas and philosophies, and good writing; to invest students with the ability to think critically and thus to discern the significance, the beauty, and the cultural work of various types of literature; and to demonstrate that students can engage in and contribute to the type of scholarly work expected in the university classroom and in the field of English studies more broadly.
