Our major in Literatures and Cultures really embraces my research, which looks at non
traditional literatures and even non textual forms of literature. I love being able to bring this
approach into my classes, and I’ve enjoyed the research opportunities it has created with
undergraduates. My work crosses a lot of disciplinary boundaries, and I feel that Merced is
the perfect place to do that.
