My research focuses on drama and on African American Literature. My theatrical reviews of contemporary and classical plays are informed by textual and historical background; and my literary analyses of dramatic texts are informed by a play's performance history and performance options in the text. Currently, in the realm of African American literature, I am working on critical analyses of Walter Mosley's fiction and non-fiction.
