Reading, Writing, Hold the Arithmetic

I am an Assistant Professor of English Literature at Radford University in Radford, Virginia, where I teach British and Anglophone literature and culture as well as gender theory, interdisciplinary courses and composition. My book investigating the connections between textual experimentation and female identity and subjectivity creation has been published by Routledge. My current research interests include modern anglophone literature (particularly Indian women), Olive Moore, the history of the novel, literary and critical theory, film studies, drama, pedagogy, young adult literature, and interdisciplinary approaches to literature and cultural studies. I am especially curious about the narrative experimentations of 20th Century British, American, and World literatures. In my fifteenth year of teaching, I still find it challenging, insipiring, and more fun than should be allowed.

Rick and I have been married for 15 years, and we have a five-year-old daughter, Hallie, and a six-year-old dog, Zola (see photos!). When we are not reading or cleaning skates, pastels or dress-up clothes off the floor, we enjoy gardening, biking, painting, Nordic skiing, British TV, hiking, camping, road trips, and eating ice cream. One of us likes to catch sticks, three of us like to read books, and three of us like to sleep.

Feel free to contact me about shared research interests.

Thanks for visiting,
