The GGS program fostered an incredible community of emerging graduate scholars over the years I was there. I admire the long history of Women's Studies at UB and was fortunate to be able to build upon that legacy both in the classroom and the streets of Buffalo. I also benefited enormously from the unrivaled community of Haudenosaunee intellectuals with whom I connected through UB. Upon finishing my PhD, I moved to Bellingham, Washington where I am currently an Assistant Professor of History and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Western Washington University on the territory of Lummi, Nooksack, and other Coast Salish people. In recent years, my work has appeared inRadical History Review and Gender and History; in summer of 2019, my monograph, Abuses of the Erotic: Militarizing Sexuality in the Post-Cold War United States, will be published by University of Nebraska Press. Building upon what I learned and experienced in Buffalo, I continue to struggle against prisons, war, settler colonialism, and other injustices in this new context.
