Biography: 

I am looking to connect post-WWII American art and literature with that in France and North Africa, trying to understand the overlapping nature of nationalism, colonialism, and race. Currently I am working on a project on hunger strikes in Morocco and some of the rippling connections, some real and others imaginary, they had in the literary world. I have a BA from Northwestern University and MFA from Maryland University.
