Sapphic Crossings: Cross-Dressing Women in Eighteenth-Century British Literature: NOW AVAILABLE (UVA Press, 2021)
Currently, I am Associate Professor and Director of Women's and Gender Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Prior to that I was a Limited Term Assistant Professor of English at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, GA and Assistant Professor of English and Women's and Gender Studies at Texas A&M International University in Laredo, TX. My research focuses on eighteenth-century literature, gender and sexuality, queer theory, and feminism. My secondary teaching and research interests include film and media studies, disability studies, Jane Austen, material culture studies, and feminist recovery practices and pedagogies.
My book Sapphic Crossings is now out with UVA Press. Check out my book website for more info. Lambda Literary listed is as one of the most anticipated LGBTQ books of February 2021!
I have published in academic journals like Eighteenth-Century Fiction, the Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies, and the International Journal for Feminist Approaches to Bioethics (IJFAB). I run a professionalization and eighteenth-century studies blog, Eighteenth-Century Notes and Petticoats, and I have blogged for IJFAB on feminist topics such as body image and BMI; female genital mutilation; and fat phobia.
You can hear me talk about my research, teaching and mentoring, and starting a minor in Women's and Gender Studies on the Texas A&M International University podcast.
I am also a creative fiction and non-fiction writer who has published short stories online.
I invite you to explore the rest of the website to learn more about these projects, my current research, as well as my creative writing and community involvement.
