About Me

I am an English doctoral student at Indiana University Bloomington. My dissertation focuses on rhetoric, intimacy, and sexual violence in British poetry and drama between 1550 and 1650. In my research I also turn to digital tools and methods to ask how they can help readers gain new critical perspectives on the relationship between literary representations of sexual violence, and the writing and reading bodies interacting with those representations.

In addition to my academic profile, I’m also a daughter, a sister, a photographer, a reader, a cook, a scrapbooker, a baker, a coffee lover, a guitar player, a book hoarder, and a yogi (yoga-er?). My blog is an attempt to document my graduate school years–the thinking and idea mapping that shapes my academic identity.
