I am an Assistant Professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Gettysburg College. After receiving my Ph.D. in the History of Consciousness and Feminist Studies from the University of California at Santa Cruz, I was an Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Gender and Sexuality Studies Program at Bryn Mawr College.  I have been a Visiting Scholar at the Beatrice Bain Research Group at the University of California at Berkeley and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality at New York University. I have also taught at Bryn Mawr College, the University of California at Santa Cruz, Keene State College, and Portland State University. I am a co-chair of the board of trustees and a former grantee (2007-08) of the Davis Putter Scholarship Fund, which provides grants to radical student-activists. I live with my partner and child in Maryland, and I frequently spend time in Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
