I am committed to improving working and learning conditions in higher education. My current projects aim to create space for radical transparency, shared vulnerability, and collective action.
Envisioning a Better Future for Higher Education
The Visionary Futures Collective is a community of people working in and around academia. We use our skills as humanists to imagine and advocate for a better future for higher education.
The AJMSG is a repository of resources relating to searching for academic and alt-ac jobs. It is also a support network for humanists working to reimagine their professional futures.
The Postdoctoral Laborers
The Postdoctoral Laborers was a labor-advocacy group that developed resources for humanities postdocs and their supervisors.
