I'm a PhD Candidate in English Language and Literature at the University of Michigan. My areas of focus are early modern literature and culture and African American and African Diasporic literature and culture.

My current project, entitled "Moors, Mulattos, and Post-Racial Problems: Rethinking Racialization in Early Modern England," focuses on early modern English literary representations of multiculturalism between black and white figures.  It considers the ways in which such representations resonate with questions of interethnicity in the African Diasporic field.

For the 2016-17 Academic year, I will be the Early Modern Conversions Graduate Fellow at the University of Michigan's Institute for the Humanities
