I'm a Humanities and Social Sciences librarian at Miami University, in Oxford Ohio, where I support the research and teaching of the Departments of English and Media, Journalism & Film. I'm also a scholar of sixteenth and seventeenth century early modern British literature, with an interest in the politics of religion. As a librarian, I'm interested in exploring new ways of doing things with texts, including digital humanities and multimodal forms of information creativity. I'm interested in ways that libraries can support and expand conversations that sustain the kinds of value and policy deliberations necessary for democratic social change.
