Her second book, Playwrights on Television: Conversations with Dramatists (Routledge, 2020), addresses the labor of the contemporary playwright through interviews with eighteen dramatic writers about their cross-platform writing careers. She has published on numerous topics related to theatre post-World War II in the United States, including: activist theatre traditions; queer precarity; performance and urban space; racial, ethnic, and geographic inequalities in the arts; and the politics of producing. 

Her essays and reviews have appeared in Lateral, PAJ, Performance Research, The Radical History Review, RiDE: The Journal of Applied Theatre and Performance, Theatre Journal, and Theatre Survey. She currently serves as Vice President of Awards for the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE). She received her Ph.D. in Theatre and Performance from the Graduate Center (City University of New York), an M.F.A. in Dramatic Writing from the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, and a B.A. in Theatre and Women’s Studies from Dartmouth College. She has taught at Baruch College (CUNY), California State University-Northridge, and Stanford University.

The Right On, Write In!
190 Rockefeller Hall

Join your fellow FGSS/LGBT Grads for a little peace, love, and writing! On the second Wednesday of every month, you are invited for a WRITE IN! Inspired by consciousness raising groups of the 1970s, we are sitting in and sharing stories (and, of course, writing!). Come share what you’re working on or come by and enjoy some free coffee! Whatever gets you inspired! During the two-hour drop-in session, we will talk about writing stumbling blocks, give and receive feedback, and/or just focus on being around supportive people as we write!
