My current research and publication interests are in the areas of online pedagogy, digital scholarship, and African American studies. A cohesive digital representation of my technological scholarship efforts is located via my MLA Humanities Common Core Site. My research interests and writing projects blend with my interests in creative composition and my interests in academic leadership.
