I am a scholar who specializes in the stuff that surrounds us and what it’s doing in 20th and 21st century American literature.

The Death of Things: Ephemera and the American Novel

My first monograph was published with the University of Minnesota Press in October 2020. It examines literary representations of disappearing objects in American culture from the beginning of the twentieth century until today. You can read about it in The Nation here. Or, if you’d like to hear me talk about this book on a podcast from iHeartradio, click here.
