My fields of expertise include the African American novel, twentieth-century American prose, and speculative fiction. I have particular interests in the politics of representation in each of these fields, as well as in exploring the way authors use their literature to effect real world changes. I also have secondary interests in classroom methods, assessment, pedagogy in the literature course, and in the institutional, pedagogical and practical aspects of first-year writing programs.

My current project is a literary history of African American science fiction, which examines the way African American authors use the unique collection of genre characteristics in science fiction to imagine new possibilities for self-identity.
