I completed my BA at Wellesley College and my PhD at the CUNY Graduate Center. Children of the Raven and the Whale: Visions and Revisions in American Literature (University of Virginia, 2019) is my second book. Domesticity and Design in American Women’s Lives and Literature: Stowe, Alcott, Cather, and Wharton Writing Home (Routledge, 2011) was my first. As a Fulbright Scholar in American Literature at the University of Antwerp, I taught graduate and undergraduate courses on space and place. At home in New York, I am proud to be Professor of English at City Tech, CUNY, where I teach literature and composition.
