I am a Ph.D. candidate working on the rhetorical and pedagogical dimensions of historical and contemporary African American expressive cultures. My dissertation—a study of aurality in African American cultural pedagogy—locates, charts, interprets, and theorizes pedagogical practices that occur in forms and contexts outside the classroom, especially in narrative prose, musical performance, and related social justice discourses that articulate the exigency of listening and learning. I have written about these topics and others in MELUS, the Society for Ethnomusicology Student NewsThe Southern Literary JournalNarrative, and College Composition and Communication.
