I am currently in my 17th year of teaching English, usually American literature, at CSUN, and am affiliated faculty in the Jewish Studies Program. In addition to teaching, I assess CSUN's Upper Division Writing Exams (UDWPE) and work actively with the Affordable Learning $olutions (AL$) team to make my courses low- or zero-cost with regard to textbooks.

At present, most of my research and writing involves both Jewish and African American performance. The idea of performance is a fascinating and a timely one in a current social context in which the borders of ethnic and racial identification are often blurred, both intracommunally and from without.
