Colorado Springs, CO
I recently became an Assistant Professor of Feminist & Gender Studies at Colorado College after having earned my Ph.D. in American Studies and a Graduate Certificate in Women’s Studies from Purdue University in 2011. My teaching and research focuses on feminism, gender and sexuality, Critical Race Theory, Critical Whiteness Studies, and Critical Media Studies. I am currently drafting a manuscript that examines contemporary tragic mulatto narratives, arguing that women with black fathers and white mothers highlight the father-daughter relationship in order to illuminate the unique relationship between race, gender, and class. Other research interests include black gay men on television, women of color in the academy, and intellectual parenting.
