Professional and Biographical Information


My broad interdisciplinary research interests include late twentieth- and early twenty first-century African American literature, women’s and gender studies, and cultural studies. My forthcoming book examines the ways in which federal marriage policies have shaped discourses of marriage since the 1960s and demonstrate the ways in which this archive reflects, assesses, and resists these discourses.
