About Me

Welcome! I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Toledo. I research and teach global Anglophone literature with a focus on 18th- and 19th-century poetics and aesthetics. My first book project, Romanticism and the Poetics of Orientation, identifies a new mode of cultural production, what I deem a “poetics of orientation,” in nineteenth-century transatlantic literature. This “poetics of orientation” roots the self-formation of the poetic subject in forms of cultural difference. In addition to nineteenth-century topics, I also work on global Asian culture and multiethnic U.S. literatures. My next book project, The Yellow Nineteenth Century, traces Asian North American culture during the late nineteenth century, specifically through print culture and newspapers. My research has been supported by the NEH, the American Antiquarian Society, the Boston Athenaeum, the Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists, and others. I have published work in the Essays in RomanticismLA Review of Books, Pleiades: Literature in Context, The Keats-Shelley Review, The Keats-Shelley Journal, The Journal of Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies, and elsewhere. My poetry has been nominated for a 2020 Pushcart Prize. My award-winning debut book of poems, Body Facts, will be released by Diode Editions in 2021.
