I’m Assistant Professor of English and Director of Undergraduate Studies at the University of Southern Mississippi, where I also serve as co-director of the Digital Archives Research Group. My teaching and research focus on 19th-century American literature and media history, with broader interests in media theory, book history, children’s literature, and the digital humanities.
My scholarship has appeared in journals such as American Literature, American Literary History, American Periodicals, and American Literary Realism. I’m also currently writing a book on the relationship between archives, authorship, and writing technologies in the age of American realism.
This website includes links to my articles, course websites, and digital projects, as well as online resources related to American literature.
