What I do

My research concentrates primarily on the voice of queer writers and how they find their place in translations broadly speaking (different languages, different countries, different times). I teach a variety of queer studies and queer theory classes, as well as broader classes on the discipline of gender studies.

Professional Biography

After completing a PhD in Russian language and literature at the University of Toronto I moved to be in the Russian program at the University of Denver. For most of the 2010s I served as an administrator in the Office of Internationalization, returning to teach in the Gender and Women’s Studies program in 2020.
