19-20th century American literature and culture
Statement of Research Interests:
I am interested in issues of citizenship and globalization, particularly following the American Civil War. I’m also a certificate student at the Center for the Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality.
Statement of Teaching Philosophy:
Too often we believe that serious writing, critical thinking, and oral presentations cannot be fun or personal. On the contrary, the best writing, the most developed thinking, and the most engaging presentations leave the audience hungry for more of your voice. It’s a balance that takes practice and the help of others!
I’m the HGSA & GSA English department grad rep for 2015. I also enjoy mentoring undergraduate students through the HRC Masterclass and the GSA/SA program to help undergraduate students prepare their graduate school applications.
I’m also the dad of the two coolest kids in Houston, 5 & 2 years old.
