Degree(s): 
Ph.D., University of Minnesota B.A., Rice University
Biography: 

I have taught courses on transnational sexualities, Asian American women, Asian American history, women of color politics in response to 9/11, and women in the arts. At Denison, I teach the introductory class “Issues in Feminism” and a class called “Gender and Sexuality in American Orientalism” (Spring 2014). I currently serve as a board member of the Arab American arts organization, Mizna. In my free time I enjoy gardening, cooking, and creative writing. I am originally from Louisville, Kentucky.

Research: 

My current research traces the anxieties surrounding Arab American migrant peddlers and their economic networks at the turn of the twentieth century and argues that this profession, which employed large number of men and women, constituted Arab immigrants as racial and sexual ‘others.’ My research shows that the transience of male Syrian peddlers and the gender and sexual transgressions of female Syrian peddlers posed a threat to claims of Syrian whiteness. Using theoretical frameworks from women of color feminist theory, post-colonial history, queer theory, and cultural studies, I read for both the presences and absences of the Syrian peddler in archives of popular culture, social welfare, and the early Arab American community. 

I am also beginning a project that puts Arab American studies in conversation with studies of U.S. settler colonialism. Thus far, I am examining how Syrian migrant peddlers in the late 19th century were facilitators of settler colonialism in newly-acquired Native lands.

Degree(s): 
B.A., Universidad de Santiago de Compostela; M.A., Eastern Michigan University; Ph.D., University of Michigan
Biography: 

When I reflect on what I enjoy most about teaching my answer comes immediately: I am in the business of thinking. I view teaching as a multidirectional learning process especially successful at the liberal arts college, where we connect all fields of knowledge to establish intellectual foundations for life-long learning. Teaching at Denison University has given me a renewed desire to learn as I feel inspired by my colleagues’ examples and the students’ demands for excellence.

There are three goals that animate my teaching: I put students at the center of the learning process, I help them develop their self-awareness and intrinsic motivation (which I think are indispensable for life-long learning), and I provide collaborative learning environments as I see them critical to educating responsible citizens.
Specific themes that I incorporate into my classes are:

  • Critical thought, active intellectual and social engagement, collaborative learning.
  • Global and local identities: migration movements, nationalism.
  • Gender identity. Representation and power of religious groups. Ethnic/race identification.
  • Service learning pedagogy.

My teaching at Denison University is enhanced by my specialization in contemporary literatures and cultures of Spain. These are some topics I examine in my research, and that we analyze in most of my classes:

  • 20th Century Peninsular literature, especially novel, with a cultural studies approach.
  • Spanish peninsular film and women studies.
  • Literature and cultures of Equatorial Guinea.
  • Africa-Spain and Trans-Atlantic connections in history of thought.
  • Sefarad.
  • Service learning philosophies.
