I am a PhD candidate in the English department at Penn, and my research addresses twentieth-century U.S. literature in relation to ideas about work and the work ethic. My dissertation project explores how the desires that people have invested in their work have changed over time. My interests include Marxist literary criticism, labor history, anti-work politics, and the novel. Prior to Penn, I taught at the City College of New York.
