I am a Professor of English at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.  I earned a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and a Graduate Certificate in Gender Studies from the University of Southern California in 2001, having completed a B.A. in Comparative Literature at Cornell University in 1994.  I taught at the University of California, Santa Cruz (2001-2003) and California State University, Bakersfield (2003-2005) before moving to UAF in 2005.
