I am a U.S.-based writer and researcher currently finishing my Ph.D. in the Department of Communication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I approach researching and teaching through the lens of cultural studies–an intellectual field and critical practice that has enabled me to develop a transdisciplinary, collaborative, and context-driven research program focused on the connections between different forms of media, formations of identity, and political and popular cultures.
My research is currently organized around three different areas of inquiry: the cultural politics of the “new” corporation, the historical and political dimensions of the figure of “the white working class,” and the ordinary and extraordinary aspects of surveillance in everyday life.
I also write and present regularly on the histories and responsibilities of the practice of cultural studies and on teaching cultural studies, and am actively conspiring with others to build better, accessible spaces for enabling the kinds of transdisciplinary, collaborative work we ought to do. You can read more about each of these in the “Research Projects” section of my site.
