Welcome to my professional blog which also doubles for the moment as my website. Here you will find updates on my current research and writing as well as any conferences that I am attending. I have also included links to my dossier and a few selected teaching materials.
I hold a PhD degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 19th Century American literature. The focus of my research is on the veterans’ experience during the post-Civil War era and how that experience shaped American culture in the thirty years following the war. This is the subject of my dissertation, The Vanishing Civil War Veteran, which I am currently revising in preparation for book publication. At the moment, I am still looking for an editor. So if anyone happens to read this page and has suggestions for a press that might be interested in my book project, please pass them along to me.
Additionally, I have research interests in the Digital Humanities. I am interested in the use of technology for the teaching of writing and literature as well as the use of digital archives and data mining for literary research.
I teach courses in introductory level literature and writing as a Lecturer at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Feel free to read and distribute the documents posted on subsequent pages. I only ask that if you republish or re-use the materials on this site that you acknowledge the source.
Any inquiries for further information should be sent to email@example.com.
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
