Literary Studies: Orwell, Eggers, technology, and privacy


After teaching high school for eight years in New Jersey, I decided to take the leap into PhD studies at Georgia State University. In the past, I have taught Honors World Literature, British Literature, and American Literature, as well as philosophy. I am in my second year at GSU as both a graduate teaching assistant and PhD student with a concentration in literary studies. My research interests include the intersection of technology and privacy/surveillance. I am looking into Orwell’s 1984 and Dave Eggers’s The Circle to that end. I am very excited to be here in Atlanta and at GSU!
