Specialization

Specializations include American Studies and writing within and across the disciplines. I am especially interested in studying the intersections of class, gender, identity, and race in American literature, manifestations of aestheticism and decadence, the impact of urbanization on cultural products, and representations of the American West--particularly in the period from the 1890s to WW II. I am also working on several grant-funded projects that engage community literacy, and as director of the Center for Writing Excellence I aim to promote of culture of writing to students, faculty, staff, alumni and members of the community.
