I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Cornell. My current work is set in Baltimore, and considers what efforts to think and enact environmental futures look like from the sedimented space of late industrialism. I am also beginning work on ecofascist sentiments in the United States, and the dark utopian visions that sustain them. This website includes links to my recent writing as well as background on my research and teaching.
For the latest writing, see a special collection I co-edited on “Fieldwork Confessionals,” recently published in American Anthropologist, and “Uncertainty in Motion,” a new research article in Cultural Anthropology.
For more information on the No Panels, Just Vibes Collective and our efforts to seed a more restful, playful field, check out our website.
Finally, I’m excited to share that my first book, Futures after Progress: Hope and Doubt in Late Industrial Baltimore, is in production with the University of Chicago Press and scheduled for release this coming spring. It is available for pre-order now.
