As Assistant Director of the Graduate Liberal Studies program, I split my time between administering the academic aspects of the program and teaching interdisciplinary classes.   My recent courses have focused on the experience of embodiment, on the experience of place, and on the experience of cultural encounter abroad.  My academic interests include issues of region, class and gender in American and post-colonial literatures, as well as the novel and narrative theory. I’m also interested in religious and intellectual history, and the history of everyday life.
