My name is Amanda Gradisek ,and this is my first time participating in something like this. I'm excited to work with you all this week. I'm an Assistant Professor of English and Gender/Women's Studies at Walsh Unviersity in Ohio, although I previously worked at the University of Wicsonsin - Rock County for four years after graduate school. My work focuses on gender and race in early twentieth-century American literature. The work I'm sharing here focuses on the image of the body of the woman of mixed-race woman in Harlem Renaissance author Nella Larsen's novel Quicksand.
Looking forward to our conversations.
