About the Expert:
My master's degree was gained at the University of Memphis. My thesis was a structural study of Les Miserables through the lens of folktales. I am now a doctoral student in the Literary and Cultural Studies branch of the English Department. I've earned a graduate cetificate in African American Literature and am working on a graduate degree in Women's and Gender Studies. My dissertation will explore tattooed American literary characters and how those characters are portrayed.
