I’m honored to serve as the director of the University of Illinois’ Education Justice Project, an initiative that provides higher education within a medium-high Illinois state prison.

I have longstanding scholarly interests in social justice. This is refelcted in my campus teaching and in my scholarship. Please click here to learn more about my two books:

Cabin, Quarter, Plantation: Architecture and Landscapes of North American Slavery (2010)

At Home with Apartheid: The Landscapes of Domestic Service in Johannesburg (2011)
