I am interested in writing on bodies. My work, both scholarly and public, deals with the way the body is written on and with, tracking various literary uses and cultural inscriptions of a wide range of non-normative bodies. I have written about tattooed ladies, Siamese Twins, strippers, freaks, P.T. Barnum and John Cameron Mitchell. For samples of my work and a list of publications, see below.
