Educational Background

University of California, Berkeley, BA


My work engages writing and pedagogy from a specifically working-class, disabled, and queer of color perspective. Central to both my research and pedagogy is the use of “critical memoir,” a method which combines critical analysis with personal writing in order to analyze the political situatedness of experience. Ultimately my work affirms the necessity of lived experience to any critical or pedagogical practice.
