At UNG, I teach upper-division courses like “American Modernism,” “Seeing Race in Literature, Law, and Film,” and “Marx, Nietzsche, Freud.” I also regularly teach literature surveys such as African-American Literature, American Literature since 1865, Multicultural American Literature and Science Fiction.
As a Postdoc at Georgia Tech, I taught courses in which students explored American literary history from the Civil War to the Cold War through recently digitized collections like Cornell’s Making of America and the Modernist Journals Project. In our last unit, we used Omeka to create our own archive of Science Fiction magazines from Tech’s SF Collection. Afterwards, I wrote a short pedagogy piece on “Teaching Modernism through Little Magazines.”
I have also published a piece on teaching Thomas Pynchon’s The Crying of Lot 49 while serving as a teaching fellow in Mainz, Germany. At JGU, I taught African-American Modernisms, Introduction to Critical Theory, and a seminar on the Fictions of American Liberalism. At the University of California, Davis, I taught Anglophone Literatures since 1900, Introduction to Literature, and several courses in freshman composition.
