Current Research/Articles in Progress

  • This semester I'm thinking about taking a breather from my ongoing look at power, slavery and race in Melville (in particular) to write about a very popular movie that people are talking about!
    In all seriousness, my brief research career has been farly focused (I think) so this semester I'll be trying something new.

Why OSU?

The faculty that I have worked with at OSU are impressive scholars and engaging teachers. And--I must say that the graduate student body in our department is a veritable curiosity shop of talent, interests, and personality.
