Associate Professor of English
I teach courses exploring British literature of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Additional teaching areas of interest include transatlantic modernism, the novel, war literature, genocide studies, contemporary global fiction and composition.
My book, Shell Shock, Memory, and the Novel in the Wake of World War I (Cambridge University Press, 2015), explores British and American shell shock novels in the company of diverse texts from the World War I era, including medical studies, battlefield guidebooks, and war memorials.
Before arriving at Hood in the fall of 2009, I taught for two years in the English Department at Wake Forest University; before pursuing my graduate work, I taught ESL in Japan for a year and a half. Outside interests include international film, contemporary Canadian fiction, and children’s literature.
