I am a doctoral candidate in English at Princeton University. My research focuses on postcolonial studies, critical theory, and the literature of the plantation zones and diasporas of the Americas—especially Anglophone and Hispanophone Caribbean literature and African-American literature. I also have long-standing interests in U.S. Latina/o literature, twentieth-century Irish and British literature, and the history and theory of the novel. My dissertation project, “Freedom and Plantation Form,” examines how the plantation is figured as a space for freedom and self-making in Caribbean literature, film, and critical writing after 1945.
