I am an Assistant Professor of English at Framingham State University in Framingham, Massachusetts, where I teach courses in American literature, modern poetry, and expository writing.
I received my Ph.D. in English literature at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2010, writing my dissertation on modern poetry and print culture. I was then named the 2011-2012 National Endowment for the Humanities Post-Doctoral Fellows in Poetics at the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry at Emory University.
I am completing my current book manuscript, Poetic Modernism in the Culture of Mass Print. Poetic Modernism, a substantial revision of my dissertation. Excerpts from the manuscript have been published in Modernism/modernity (2011) and Journal of Modern Literature (2009). I have also published articles in Journal of Modern Periodical Studies, Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies, and African American Review. My full list of presentations and publications, as well as the courses I have taught, can be found on my Curriculum Vitae.
In addition to completing my current manuscript, I also co-edit the Modern American Poetry Site and edit the Book Poem Project.
