In addition to research and teaching in the traditional classroom, I am interested in prison education and translation work. I see the former not only as a way to give back to the community, but also as a means of practicing public humanities—engaging audiences beyond the academy; rethinking what the humanities have to offer society broadly speaking; and redefining who humanists are, what they do, and where they do it. The latter allows me to build bridges with colleagues around the world and continually reaffirm my commitment to language learning as a historian and as a global citizen.
