Research Interests: Critical Theory, Cultural Studies, Aesthetics, Gender & Sexuality, Long 19th-century to the present


I received my BA with High Honors from Wesleyan University, where I majored in English and the College of Letters (European Literature, Philosophy and History from antiquity to the present). I'm currently interested in autology, autopoiesis and autoeroticism as conceptual sites where analogies between aesthetic judgment and sexual activity break down.
