I am an transdisciplinary scholar with peer-reviewed publications and teaching experience in gender and women's studies, European history, sociology of violence against women, and anthropology. My doctoral work focused on intersections of sexuality, class, gender and race in early nineteenth-century Europe. My research interests and practices are grounded primarily in queer women's history, indigenous history, and a gendered and intersectional history of the nuclear age.

My current pedagogical practice in the multi-cultural women's studies classroom is strongly informed by intersectional feminism (Combahee River Collective, 1977; Crenshaw, 1991) and by Claude Steele's (2011) work on stereotype threat. I have also been somewhat influenced by Donald Schon's (1973, 1978) theories of 'double-loop' learning. I am committed to interactive learning and student empowerment and utilize a reflective feedback practice to constantly improve my teaching. I favor a combination of lectures and small peer-group interactions that reinforce critical thinking about discourses and reading sources.



Master of Arts (MA) Online Education

The Open University

Institute of Educational Technology, The Open University, Walton Hall Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire    MK7 6AA UK

Tel: [+44] (0)1908 655581 | Fax: [+44] (0)1908 654173

Advisor: Senior Lecturer Dr. Robin Goodfellow,

This is equivalent to a US Master's in Education with an emphasis in online pedagogy. It included online graduate tutorials and peer group work with some of the world's leading educational researchers.  It focused on theories of experiential and interactive education, design of assessments to match learning goals, technology-enhanced learning practices and debates, practice-based research in educational technology,  analysis of  different learner styles, distance and online curriculum design, evaluating student support systems and pedagogical practices for quality; and establishing and maintaining interactive, effective elearning groups in Blackboard. Awarded a distinction in final year.


Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) History of Sexuality

University of York (World Top 100)

University of York, Heslington, York, YO10 5DD, UK Tel: +44 (0) 1904 430000 | Fax: +44 (0) 1904 43343

Advisor: Professor Jane Rendall,

International, interdisciplinary, cutting-edge tutorials, seminars and readings dealing with the last 300 years of European history. I analyzed the early nineteenth-century archives of a Yorkshire woman who had several female lovers and left a detailed, partially coded journal and correspondence. The journal is the earliest known first-person representation of female-female sexuality. An intersectional, discursive analysis of the texts  yielded rich and multi-layered understandings of how politics, gender, sexuality, race, class and female networks were constructed in this time and place, as well as providing valuable insight into the relationship between private and public consciousness. Since English universities do not have a transcript system, I have attached the diploma to this CV, and can provide foreign equivalency certification.
