I am a PhD Candidate at Duquesne University where I focus on modern and postmodern literatures, narrative theory, and film studies.
My current research focuses on British authors’ engagement with fascism and the Holocaust. My dissertation, Narrative Forms of Fascism, Violence, and Power in 20th Century British Fiction, investigates how Nancy Mitford, Storm Jameson, and D.M. Thomas explore the violence of fascism and the Holocaust through narrative and how those narratives reflect and refract the reader’s understanding of violence.
I am currently an adjunct lecturer at John Carroll University where I teach courses in composition, business communications, and American literature.
