I am an associate professor of English at Framingham State University, where I teach undergraduate and graduate courses on modern and contemporary poetry (including contemporary African American poetry and poetry of the Harlem Renaissance), American literature, and composition.
I am the author of Poetic Modernism in the Culture of Mass Print (Johns Hopkins, 2017) along with multiple articles and essays on modern poetry, print culture/periodical studies, and digital humanities.
I am the Project Director for two current National Endowment for the Humanities grants: an American Rescue Plan grant to create a Digital Humanities Center at Framingham State University and a Humanities Initiatives grant to launch a series of initiatives investigating race through digital humanities methods. I am also an M. C. Lang Fellow in Book History, Bibliography, and Humanities Teaching with Historical Sources at Rare Book School.
I also direct the Modern American Poetry Site (MAPS), the premier academic website on modern and contemporary American poetry.
Finally, as a father of young twins, I have a developing personal and professional interest in academic fatherhood.
