I am an Associate Director of Undergraduate Teaching and Lecturer in the Department of English at Indiana University Bloomington where I support graduate student and postdoctoral instructors and teach composition and intensive writing literature courses. I earned my Ph.D. in English from the University of Georgia. My interdisciplinary research and teaching interests include the stories we tell about women artists, including painters, photographers, sculptors, and actors, and their creative labor. At IUB, my digital projects composition course “Woman, Image, Myth: The Mediated Lives & Afterlives of Marilyn Monroe” asks students to interrogate how and why the Hollywood icon has continued to dominate our cultural imagination. As part of my administrative work and service to the profession, I write and present often on topics related to teaching and learning, including active learning, creativity, digital pedagogy, instructional design, and multimodality.
I also collaborate with my colleague Miranda Rodak on co-authoring OER materials rooted in our collective SoTL research. To view our collaborations, visit our Joint Humanities Commons Profile
