Graduated with PhD 2008
Currently Assistant Professor, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Indiana University South Bend

I am a doctoral student in the Department of Sociology. I am primarily interested in social psychological narrative studies. My current research is on the Jim Rome Show, a nationally syndicated sports radio show. I focus on the ways callers to this show, the Clones, narrate identities, communities, and inequalities. I am also working on an analysis of the uses of narrative across several related disciplines, including sociology, anthropology, linguistics, psychology, and cultural studies.
