Research Interests

Situated at the juncture of pedagogical, literary, and visual culture studies, my work examines the rhetorical choices, both written and visual, that writers make when negotiating various institutional spaces. In previous scholarship, I have explored women’s accounts of psychiatric institutionalization and analyzed the potential for memoir and other forms of life writing to function as political and social protest. My next project will consider the role that a critical and feminist pedagogical framework can play in the STEM classroom.
