Her research on contemporary American and Caribbean literature, race, ethnicity, and gender can be found in MELUS (2019) and American Literary History (forthcoming, 2021), and American Quarterly (forthcoming, 2022). She is currently working on a book tentatively titled American Charisma: Race, Leadership, and Collectivity, 1960-2018. 

Sarah's research and teaching interests include antiracist pedagogy, multimodal composition, contemporary Black and Indigenous literature, and speculative fiction.

Sarah earned her PhD in English Literature from the University of Virginia in May 2021. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, biking, cooking, making cartoons and watercolor art, playing flute and guitar, and hanging out with her dog, partner, and friends.

Prior to attending the University of Virginia, Sarah earned her BA in English from the University of Rochester. Before getting into English and writing, Sarah was a classical flutist, and studied flute performance at the Eastman School of Music with Bonita Boyd.
