My academic interests include: fanfiction & the building of affective communities; eros in the classroom; feminism; composition pedagogy; writing theory; WPA; poetry & poetics; creative nonfiction; the application of creative writing pedagogical methods across the curriculum; issues of queerness, gender, & authority in the humanities classroom; trauma theory; the Gurlesque; longform sportswriting; everything related to Lolita (both text & archetype); & cultural materialism.

Some of my favorite non-academic things include: American Horror Story, Hannibal, The X-Files, Jeopardy, football, basketball, horse racing, fantasy sports, poker, craft beer, learning Danish, & spending time with my husband, cat, & nephews.
