Graduate Instructor, University Writing Program

Nicole’s research and writing deals with issues of identity, community, and memory in Irish and New Zealand literature. She is particularly interested in exploring the interrelationship of these concepts with the embodied aesthetic experience that occurs in dramatic texts.
Nicole’s teaching is influenced by her research interests and her background in drama studies. At the center of her approach to writing and rhetoric is an interrogation of the ways in which identities are performed and communities are staged in both everyday and digital spaces. She is particularly interested in the ethical questions and implications that arise when the body is no longer physically present within digital spaces.
