// Welcome

I direct the Women’s and Gender Studies Program and am Associate Professor of English at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin.

My scholarship is primarily in two areas: Women’s and Gender Studies and Gender, Religion, and American literature and Culture.  My current project, Feminism’s New Age: Gender, Appropriation, and the Afterlife of Essentialism. State University of New York (SUNY) Press, June, 2011, examines why so many women are interested in New Age culture rather than civic feminist expression.
