My research focuses on feminism and media in the 20th and 21st centuries. In my dissertation, I ask what can be learned about the social movements of the current moment by using media studies methods to look back at the US feminist movement of the 1960s and 70s.
As a practitioner, I am committed to critically engaged pedagogy and to collaboratively developing campus arts and social justice programming. I am also interested in the ways that humanities work can serve publics beyond the university. Currently, I work at the Women's Resources and Research Center as the Director of the Davis Feminist Film Festival.
