Assistant Professor of English
My broad specialization is in twentieth-century American literature. I have published articles on a wide variety of women’s issues in literature and maintain a blog, entitled LiteratiMom, that focuses on literary depictions of motherhood. My current book project explores representations of black motherhood in narratives of slavery, Reconstruction, and segregation, ranging chronologically from Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 Uncle Tom’s Cabin to Alice Randall’s 2001 The Wind Done Gone. I teach courses in literature and composition for the Department of English and a sequence of courses in the Western humanities for the Honors College.
