For me, research involves writing, editing, and exhibiting.
Combining insights from literature, librarianship, and business, my forthcoming book Archival Bodies: The American Market for Literary Collections since 1944 tracks the rise of the multi-million dollar market for writers' papers through a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods. My two most recent publications are: "'Possessing an Inner History': Curators, Donors, and Affective Stewardship," for Collections: A Journal for Museum and Archives Professionals and "Mentoring a Peer: A Feminist Ethic for Directing Undergraduate Humanities Research," for Undergraduate Research and the Academic Librarian: Case Studies and Best Practices, published by Association of College and Research Libraries in Fall 2017.
I also serve as a Contributing Editor at Archive Journal, an interdisciplinary journal on the use and theory of archives and special collections in higher education. There, I recruit and edit pieces for the Notes and Queries section and maintain the Twitter account.
