Lecturer on History & Literature, Harvard University
I teach and write about modern drama. My research interests include theater and performance studies, transatlantic modernism, and world theater. My writing has appeared in venues including Theatre Journal, Modern Drama, Theatre History Studies, and American Theatre.
I received my PhD from Harvard University's Department of English in 2017. My book manuscript, Profaning Theater: The Drama of Religion on the Modernist Stage, explores how the theater’s passage into secular modernity inspired a new fascination with the religious past. I have taught courses at Harvard College and Emerson College, and have also worked as a writing tutor at the Harvard Extension School. I served as the Executive Director of the Mellon School of Theater and Performance Research at Harvard from 2013-2016.
