My research and teaching interests include 19th to mid-20th century American and Canadian literatures, Black cultural and literary studies, New Southern Studies, whiteness studies, and critical race theory. I am currently completing a manuscript on the cultural history of lynching in Canada, provisionally titled Lynching in Canaan: Race, Violence, and Cultural Memory in Canada, 1880-1950.
