Ph.D Student and Teaching Fellow
My research draws on the environmental humanities, the history and philosophy of science (especially ecology, biology, and medicine), and American literature from antebellum to World War I (1830s - 1914).
My article "James Dickey's Deliverance, Film Adaptation, and the Postsouthern" is forthcoming (2017) in Mississippi Quarterly, and you can also find reviews I've written at Boundary 2 (web) and The Carolina Quarterly.
As a Teaching Fellow, I regularly teach courses in composition and rhetoric, and in the Fall of 2017 I taught ENGL 144: Popular Genres. I'm also a Research Assistant in UNC's Music Library, a co-founder of the annual Post45 Graduate Colloquium, an inagural member of UNC’s “New Directions in 19th Century Studies” working group, a co-chair of the UNC-Duke Americanist Speakers Series, and the Book Review Editor for The Carolina Quarterly.
