Brief Bio: 

I am doctoral candidate in American Studies who is interested in building an online community of fellow pop culture fanatics and digital humanists. As a two-time fellow of the Center for Race and Ethnicity at Brown University, my dissertation, “Pacific Sensations: Seeing Yellow in 19th-century American Print Culture,” engages with the global turn in American literature and considers the role of the China Trade in print culture and racial formation in America. I analyze figures related to the China Trade in nineteenth-century American literature—considering authors such as Herman Melville, Ambrose Bierce, and Edith Maude Eaton—alongside material objects involved in the trade, including porcelain, lantern slides, and silks.
