Fields of interest:
My teaching and research interests lie mainly in twentieth-century British women’s fiction and culture, Virginia Woolf, narrative theory, theories of embodiment, and food studies. I am at work on a book-length study of ways in which selected writers have used representations of women’s relationships to food (including cooking, serving, and eating) in order to challenge traditional mind/body duality. I am also quite interested in the World War II era and its literature. At the Stark campus I have taught composition courses, Major Modern Writers, and Literature in English II. I include service-learning opportunities in my classes as often as possible, and encourage students to connect theory and practice in order to strengthen their academic learning experiences. I hold an MFA in creative writing, and publish poetry and creative nonfiction regularly.
