As an undergrad, I used to think English professors taught courses they loved to passionate students, discussed cutting-edge ideas with fellow scholars over a bottle of red, and wrote books about subjects that made their minds tingle.
It sounded like the most delightful and intellectually rewarding of lives, and I dreamt I someday might get to live it.
I must say that although my picture was rather rosy, it was—in my case at least—not inaccurate.

As an English professor, I get to do all those things. However, there is so much more that happens behind the scenes of academia.

Much of it takes the form of some committee—or ten—and that work is not particularly rosy. Committees notwithstanding, I love my academic life, and I’m infinitely grateful to live it.
Below I share a selection of my scholarship. Check out my CV for the completist version.
