I'm a PhD candidate in English at Northeastern University, specializing in early American and Caribbean literature. My dissertation, "The Sable Curtain: Redaction and the Exchange of Women in Eighteenth-Century Transatlantic Print Culture," theorizes the redaction of interracial sexual encounters in colonial Caribbean writing. I am the Project Manager for the Early Caribbean Digital Archive, and also work as a Research and Encoding Specialist for the Women Writers Project. Additionally, I am a Graduate Fellow in Northeastern's NULab for Texts, Maps, Networks.
