I specialize in nineteenth-century British literature, and I'm also interested in and teach courses on critical theory, children's and YA literature, film, feminism, and queer theory. My publications include essays on Charles Dickens, Anthony Trollope, Mary Cowden Clarke, and the Harry Potter and Hunger Games series.
I am also the adviser for the English Department's FYI/JYI Secondary Education Options. Get in touch with me if you are considering a career teaching English at the secondary school level.
