Current Research Activities

My creative work and conference presentations were all stalled last year due to COVID. I am currently developing an adaptation of John Steinbeck's IN DUBIOUS BATTLE and continuing research on race impersonation in contemporary theatre. My research on incarceration is on hold due to COVID and other ethical concerns.

Research Connections to Current Events

My teaching, research, and creative work is critical in approach and typically focuses on issues of inequity. There's nothing particularly timely about this issue--it has been important for hundreds of years and will continue to be so--but I try to engage questions that are relevant to this moment.
