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.
