Professor, Department of English.

I work in ecocultural theory, the environmental humanities, animal studies, the blue humanities, posthumanism, science studies, new materialism, gender theory, cultural studies, and multicultural American literatures. I focus on the sites where theoretical problems intersect with ethical and political matters, where scholarly questions collide with everyday life. I pursue cross-disciplinary modes of inquiry that allow the unexpected to emerge.
