About

I specialize in early American literature, specifically early American and nineteenth century fiction. My research interests include gender & sexuality studies, queer theory, BDSM, and pornography. I teach classes on early American women's writing and material culture, queer theory, life writing, and embodiment. 

My work appears in Legacy: A Journal of American Women Writers, Early American Literature, and J19: The Journal of Nineteenth-Century Americanists. It has been supported by fellowships from the Library Company of Philadelphia, The Pennsylvania Historical Society, the Mellon Foundation, and the American Antiquarian Society.
