I am a Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow in the school of Literature, Media, and Communication at Georgia Tech. My research focuses on American literature and culture after 1900, critical theory, and the intersection of visual and textual forms. I have a BA in Literature from Duke University and a PhD in English from the University of Virginia.
My book project, Legible Subjects, Senseless Violence, is about violence and emotion in contemporary American fiction and art. My scholarship on contemporary fiction, violence, the avant-garde, affect studies, feminist theory, and aesthetics has appeared or is forthcoming in Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society, South Atlantic Review, the minnesota review, and LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory. I have additional research and teaching interests in the digital humanities, gender and sexuality studies, critical race theory, visual culture, digital pedagogy, and rhetoric and composition.
