I specialize in American literature since 1880 and the theory of minor knowledges. My research interests include history of science, poetics, gender and sexuality, childhood, media, and visual culture.


For prospective PhD students:

I welcome proposals for projects in American literature from 1800, and/or proposals with theoretical investments in history of science, media and technology studies, gender and sexuality studies, childhood, realisms and naturalisms, illness and disability, or poetics. Recently, I am especially interested in ideas about time, innocence, and publics. I am primarily interested in theoretically-driven projects that do not take periodization or canons for granted; I will almost never be interested in supervising a single-author project.

I am committed to supporting students of color and welcome their inquiries.
