PERSONAL STATEMENT

I've been teaching Humanities, Drama, and English at South Seattle College since 2016. I joined the English/Humanities department as full-time, tenure-track faculty in 2018. I teach the range of English composition courses (from developmental ENGL through ENGL 102) as well as classes on global/US film, diasporic literature and art from around the world, performance studies courses, and interdisciplinary humanities courses. My favorite part about teaching at South is working one-on-one with our students to develop a sense of agency and ownership of communication and social justice practices, research/writing interests, and critical thinking patterns. 

My primary areas of expertise are the imagination of natural disaster in 20th-century cultural productions of the American South and Caribbean, comparative black diaspora studies, and environmental aesthetics. In addition to my teaching at South I am currently working to finish my dissertation titled “Natural Catastrophe in Hemispheric American Cultures”. This project rethinks catastrophe by analyzing cultural and historical dimensions as a point of ecological transition, as a crucible for literary innovation, and on a scale of human costs in four contexts (earthquakes, hurricanes, deforestation, and rising tides). I am also a founding member and contributor to Seattle-based performance critique collective: DeConstructDeConstruct is dedicated to intersectional analysis and peer-review of cross-disciplinary performance to foster increased equity in the arts in the Puget Sound region. I am the founding Managing Editor of Process: Journal of Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Scholarship.
