I am happy to announce that I started my new position as Visiting Assistant Professor of Theatre at the College of Saint Rose this year. I look forward to developing courses that support and expand upon the department's mission. In the fall semester, I will be teaching: Theatre History, Acting Studio Study, and Theatre Arts. For the spring semester, I am developing a Playwriting course for majors and non-majors, as well as a specialty course called "Critical Interventions in Musical Theatre," which will draw heavily on gender theory, queer studies, and critical race theory in conversation with contemporary musicals and revivals.

I co-convened a working group session titled Violent Bodies, Violent Acts for the American Society for Theatre Research. Our twenty participants met in Atlanta, Georgia in November of 2017 to discuss questions such as trauma, witnessing, and complicity in representational and mimetic violence. This work influenced my Coup de Théâtre publication, "Death is the Wages of Sin: Murder and the True Crime Musical," forthcoming in 2018.
