About Me

Hello, and welcome! I am a PhD candidate in Comparative Literature at the University of Texas at Austin. My dissertation considers the relationship between the Holocaust and Algerian War in French cultural memory. I explore writing by Marguerite Duras, Charlotte Delbo, and Germaine Tillion as alternative models of civil disobedience and human rights activism.

Along with my frequent collaborator, Caroline Barta, I host the podcast Archival Fever and write and edit for Thinking in Public.

As a Mellon Engaged Scholar Fellow, I am developing curriculum workshops for secondary educators in the Austin, Texas community. I am an advocate for using the humanities to facilitate critical conversations and incite change, beginning in the classroom.
