At present, I am working on a 2-year agenda to re-focus my Scholarship into the field of Book Reviewing.

Since the probationary process is different for teaching-stream faculty, I have a unique opportunity to focus on less research-intensive publishing forums. As a former librarian, I am excited by this future new direction in my scholarship.

Stay tuned for more details over the Summer of 2018!
