Associate Professor, English
- Current disciplinary research interests
Finishing my second book of nonfiction, an essay collection about natural history and the post-atomic landscape. And thinking and writing about creative writing pedagogy.
- Interest in connecting sustainability to research
For teaching, incorporating texts having to do with human responses to the non-human world into my reading lists; for research, grappling with artifacts in the landscape and teasing out what they might mean, in larger historical and creative contexts.
