Assistant Professor, Culture and Media & Director, First Year Writing Program Profile:
My research is broadly concerned with the aesthetic and political efficacy of our everyday practices in those places where literature, art and social activism meet. Current book-length projects include The Order of Resistance (an ethnography investigating the role of archives and archiving in the work of feminist activists, scholars and cultural workers from 1990 and 2010) and Adjusted Margin: The Copy Machine as a Co-Agent of Social Change (a media history investigating how copy machines supported the rise of feminist and queer counter-publics in the late twentieth century). In addition to my research in the fields of book and publishing history, cultural studies and media studies, I am a writer and literary editor. My most recent collection is Fieldnotes, a forensic (2010).
Creating new and productive models of knowledge production and literary and artistic inquiry is an integral part of my work as a researcher, educator, and cultural worker. As an educator, I seek to stage encounters between writers, artists, curators, and students both on campus and in the community. As a researcher, I participate in many of the cultural organizations and social movements at the center of my research. These interventions reflect a commitment to promoting reciprocity and fostering strategic alliances between the university and community-based organizations in all aspects of my work.
