Vitae

Areas of responsibility

As Honors Program Director, I oversee all honors recruitment and retention initiatives and coordinate the interdisciplinary honors curriculum, among other duties. The program comprises the top 3% of WOU's undergraduate population. As a lit prof, I specialize in 20th-century English and Irish literature, especially fiction of the post-World War II period. I also teach classes in literary history, critical theory, and film. My scholarly projects are oriented to both general and specialized audiences, featuring work on such writers as Kingsley and Martin Amis, Salman Rushdie, Jeanette Winterson, W.B. Yeats, and Martin McDonagh. An 80,000 word novel, Flight, remains unpublished but was perhaps my most meaningful endeavor.
