I am currently the Sterling Brown Distinguished Visiting Professor of Africana Studies at Williams College (2016-2017). My permanent position is Associate Professor of English at York College/CUNY, specializing in World Anglophone Literature with an emphasis on Caribbean Literature. I teach courses in Anglophone Caribbean Literature, Postcolonial Literature and Theory, Literatures of the African Diaspora, and Gender Studies. My book, Disturbers of the Peace: Representations of Insanity in Anglophone Caribbean Literature (University of Virginia Press, 2013), considers the ubiquity of madmen and madwomen in Caribbean literature between 1959 and 1980. My current book project, Caribbean Articulations: Storytelling in a Digital Age, addresses Caribbean narratives constructed and communicated via digital formats.

I edit sx salon: a small axe literary platform and I manage The Caribbean Commons site along with various other digital projects.  You can learn more about these projects here.
