I completed my A.B. at Brown University, my M.A. at the University of Chicago and my Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Before coming to USF I taught at Swarthmore College and at UW-Madison, and served as Outreach Coordinator at the University of Wisconsin-System Women's Studies Consortium. I've published articles and book chapters on Anglo-American women writers, psychoanalysis, modernism, and feminist theory, and am co-author of Women Writing Culture, a collection of scholarly interviews. At present my professional concerns are focused around Critical Animal Studies, Literature and Historiography, Virginia Woolf, Modernism, and Contemplative Pedagogies.
