I have been teaching at California State University, Northridge since 2004. In addition to CSUN, I have taught at the College of the Canyons; Oxnard College; Santa Monica College; California State University, Dominguez Hills; and the University of Southern California.
I have written a book-length study on the representation of time in Shakespeare’s _Richard II_, _Henry IV_, and _Macbeth_ (1997), which was my Ph.D. thesis. My additional published work has examined the reconfiguration of Jewish American femininities, post-Holocaust literature, Shakespeare appropriation, and black and Jewish relations, as well as the representation of trauma, transfiguration, and literary alchemy in the work of David Dabydeen. My recent post-Jungian publications include “Whose Shadow Is It? The Representation of Postcolonial Trauma and Creativity in Anton Nimblett’s ‘Ring Games’ and ‘Sections of an Orange.’” (International Journal of Jungian Studies; Routledge, August 2018) and “Creolizing C.G. Jung? Re-imagined Alchemy and Individuation in Anton Nimblett’s Sections of an Orange and Lelawattee Manoo-Rahming’s Curry Flavour” (Journal of Postcolonial Writing; Routledge, June 2016).
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, hanging out with friends, indulging in the many outdoor concerts and theater performances here in Los Angeles. Moreover, I love being in nature, and my favorite weekend activities include hiking or camping in the wilderness during our summer break.
