I am on leave Fall 2018-Winter 2019 while I work as Interim Assistant Director of Education at the WRRC.
My research focuses on feminism and media in the 20th and 21st centuries. In my dissertation, I ask what can be learned about the feminisms of the current moment by using media studies methods to look back at US feminist activism in the 1960s and 70s.
As a practitioner, I am committed to working toward equity in higher education and have experience supporting students from marginalized communities in the development of student-led arts and social justice programs. I am also interested in the ways that humanities work can serve publics beyond the university.
