Degrees

2016, BA English, Rhodes College

2019, MA English, University of Alabama

Bio

I read and write about satire from Chaucer to Sterne. I’m currently thinking about the strengths and limitations of satire as a genre: is ridicule ever an effective way of inculcating moral change, or is it mostly good at confirming divisions and broadcasting quarrels? Additional interests include epic poetry, classical reception, and Njal’s Saga.

Degrees

2012, BA English Literature and Political Science, Loyola Marymount University

2015, MA English, Claremont Graduate University

Bio

My research interests include the history of the novel, narrative performance, and authenticity. Drawing from British novels of the Long Eighteenth Century and Twentieth Century American novels, I hope to produce a project that examines narrative interruptions: moments in a text when a voice, distinct from that of any other character, enters the narrative.

Some of my past research examines: the performance of authenticity in The Catcher in the Rye and Franny and Zoey, competing narrative frames in Frankenstein, a blending of genres in The Castle of Otranto, resistance to introspection in Mumblecore films, and the role of authenticity in Hip Hop.
