Meet our Editors

I acquire books on the early modern and Enlightenment periods, the history of science, the environmental humanities, and contemporary culture. My list is unified by a focus on interdisciplinary projects as well as those that address issues of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and disability to advance our understanding of both human diversity and the complex history of marginalization. 

I hold a B.A. in English literature from Vanderbilt University and an M.F.A. in creative writing (poetry) from the University of Virginia. Prior to joining UVA Press in 2004, I worked for InteLex Corporation, a pioneer in humanities electronic publishing.

I acquire books on Africa and the African Diaspora. My list seeks texts that explore African and Afro-diasporic cultural practices and quotidian life in the contemporary period by connecting them to historical, economic, and political causes. Books on racialization in Africa and its Diaspora, Black colonial and postcolonial life, Black/Afro-feminisms and womanisms, Black transnationalism and international connections, Black queer life and theory, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Latin American politics and identities, Black disability studies, and contemporary Black arts and cultures in the U.S. South are of particular interest.

I hold a B.A. in Political Science and Latina/o Studies from Northwestern University and an M.A./Ph.D. in African and African Diaspora Studies from the University of Texas at Austin.
