I am an assistant professor of English at NC State University in Raleigh, NC. Before that I taught at Wheaton College in Massachusetts. My research and teaching focus on eighteenth-century British literature as well as the literature of 9/11. I have completed a book manuscript called Sounding Imperial: Poetic Voice and the Politics of Empire, 1730-1820, which describes the evolution of poetic voice as it engages with oral traditions and impersonates foreign speakers. It’s available next year (2013) from the Johns Hopkins University Press. Keep an eye out for it; you can find a copy to order from the JHUP website. My next project examines the emergence of Anglo-Indian literature within the many disparate nodes and relays of the Indian Ocean world. In addition to this scholarly research, I have also written about the current state of the humanities, research centers, and the writing process for The Chronicle of Higher Education and for the Journal of Scholarly Publishing.
