My graduate training and primary interest is in early-American literature and they way our stories influence how we think about the nation and ourselves as Americans.  I’ve also become increasingly involved in community-engaged learning and enjoy teaching literature that challenges dominant paradigms.

Although I often have my nose in a book, I enjoy being active and spend my free time biking, running, swimming … anything, really. I’ve lived in Saint Paul for over 20 years and love taking part in all that our city has to offer.

Minnesota boasts its lakes, its music, and keeps urging us to see it as more “north” than “midwest.” Got it. But what does it truly mean to be “North,” and how does this distinction influence how others see our state, and how we see ourselves? In this course we’ll explore the idea of “North” as advertised by many in the upper Midwest, and we’ll also consider images and ideas about our state and others neighboring us as seen in literature and film — both by those who call the 32nd state home, and those who just visit for a while. Possible authors may include F. Scott Fitzgerald, Patricia Hampl, Linda Hogan, Danez Smith, and Kao Kalia Yang and possible audio sources include work from Bob Dylan, Atmosphere, and Prince. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement.

What makes a hero, and how do we contribute to their construction? Are super powers enough? Do they have to be good? Do they have to be likable? Must they rescue someone? Which qualities matter to audiences, and what separates the passable hero from the truly Halloween-costume and lunchbox-worthy ones? This fully online course explores the construction of “the hero” by considering its genesis, its development, and its (sometimes) eventual fall within various contemporary sources alongside older literal and visual touchstones. We will investigate with makes the hero so revered and then consider what these qualities reveal about the human condition. Possible texts include J.M. Coetzee’s FOE, Jonathan Eid’s THE LUCKIEST MAN, Gillian Flynn’s GONE GIRL, and Homer’s THE ODYSSEY. Possible films include BLACK PANTHER, SPIDERMAN, THE DARK KNIGHT and WONDER WOMAN. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement.
