I am the liaison to the Department of English Language and Literature and the Sweetland Center for Writing. I am also the subject specialist for English language and literature.
I hold a Ph.D. in English and American Literature from the University of Virginia. My research focuses on race and gender in print culture and new media. My work has appeared in Victorian Literature and Culture, American Periodicals, and portal: Libraries and the Academy. My book, Fictions of Dissent: Reclaiming Authority in Transatlantic Women’s Writing of the Late Nineteenth Century (2010), was published by Pickering and Chatto.
