My fields of specialization are American literature, especially early American studies, women’s literature and culture, and feminist studies. I also work in digital humanities and public humanities. I am the editor of The Occom Circle, a digital edition of documents by and about Samson Occom, an 18th century Mohegan writer and activist. I am currently doing a weekly blog about the year 1862 in the life and poetry of Emily Dickinson. The full-length film, "It's Criminal: A Tale of Prison and Privilege," that documents the course I co-teach in and about jails and drug rehabs, is now screening at festivals and universities around the country and the world.
