I work in literary and cultural studies, with geographical emphasis on comparative studies of the Americas (especially the United States, the Caribbean, and Brazil). Much of my teaching and research focuses on human rights and LGBT/Queer Studies.
Spring 2013 Queer Pleasure and Politics
I am pursuing two overlapping research streams:
- A series of essays that consider the function literature may have in the emergence of cultures of human rights.
- Comparative study of the literature and culture of Brazil and the United States.
