My research interests include the rhetorics of space and public memory, visual rhetoric, ethnography and postcolonial subjectivities, all of which inform my teaching of writing to varying degrees. I am working on a monograph, Walled Memoria: Presencing Memory Sites in Intramuros, Manila, about the narratives and counter-narratives of various memory sites located within the former Spanish colonial center of the Philippines. I have a chapter, “Writing to Name: Documents and Disruptions of a Non-Native Teacher-Scholar,” in Lingua Franca: First Generation Scholars in Rhetoric, Composition, and Communication, currently in review with the NCTE. I also write plays, screenplays, and fiction. My most recent story appeared in Flash Fiction International, published by W.W. Norton.
