Assistant Professor

His scholarship includes esotericism, material culture, affect studies, critical theory, religion and literature, queer theory and textile studies. His current book manuscript, Occult Feelings: Esotericism and Queer Relationality in Nineteenth-Century US Literature argues that the literary use of occult language, images, and philosophies encouraged the exploration of new forms of erotic attachment in nineteenth-century America.
