I am an assistant professor of English at the University of South Carolina, Upstate and earned my interdisciplinary doctorate at the University of Michigan in English and Women's Studies. My current research focuses on topics including W.E.B. Du Bois, Ralph Waldo Emerson, nineteenth-century women writers, anti-imperialism, and the image of Haiti in early United States literature.
