I’m a PhD Candidate at Texas A&M University. I’m currently working on my dissertation which looks at depictions of whiteness in Obama era Black satire. I specialize in 20th and 21st century American literature and film, specifically multi-ethnic writers, including Colson Whitehead, Jordan Peele, and Nicholasa Mohr.

MemberShawn Moore

I’m a graduate student, Ph.D., in the Department of English at Texas A&M University. I am also a fellow for the Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture. My current research is investigating the sociability of dramatic closet dramas and philosophical treatises of early English Restoration women writers. By mapping the associations of integral networks of personal and intellectual nodes within private works of early women writers, especially Margaret Cavendish (1623-1673), I am trying to challenge the notion that sociable texts required sociable readerships.

I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Ph.D. in English in 2011, with concentrations in rhetoric and composition, women’s studies, and medieval studies. These interests now guide me in writing about contemporary issues and contexts of coloniality, especially those affecting Latinxs. My primary areas of interest are race, gender, disability, embodied rhetorics and rhetorics of embodiment, and inclusive and empowering pedagogies.
