Please see my recent review of Stuart Elden's book Shakespearean Territories
I am so pleased to share the Special Issue that Emily Skop and I co-edited on  Bordering Practices, Local Resistance, and the Global Refugee "Crisis"Articles authored by:  Culcasi, Skop, and Gorman; Gorman; Agnew; Coddington; Koca; Houston; Pascucci; and Skop, Tonyan, and Cassiday.

My research uses critical and feminist geopolitical frames to examine contested places and   identities. My work focuses on the "Middle East," the Arab world, and Appalachia.
I am currently working on a book, under contract at the University of Chicago, on refugee practices and imaginings in Jordan.
