I serve as the Director of Domain of One's Own @ Emory, a program in which students and faculty publish multimodal digital work to their own personal domains. We run workshops for faculty development, help faculty create digital assignments, conduct classroom visits, and work one-on-one with incoming Domain faculty (in "Domain 101"). If you would like to find out more about the program, please contact me.

Race, Gender and Media-Making (English 328W)
Southern Jewish Writers (English 389W/Jewish Studies 375W)
From Savannah to Charleston, Nashville to New Orleans, there has been a recent explosion of interest and cultural production surrounding Jewish cultural identity in the U.S. South. We will read memoirs, fiction, and nonfiction about Southern Jewish life from 1733 to the present, with a special focus on cultural hybridity and culinary traditions. Students will do archival research in the Rose Library and produce multimedia projects presenting their artifacts and positioning them in a historical context for multiple audiences.
Multimodal Composition: Autoethnography
You can read some of my work on school novels and women's work as well as children's literature and the gendering work of education here. My Ph.D. dissertation (2007) is on "Gender and Literacy in Britain, 1847-1987: The Rhetoric of Girls’ Education."
