In both my teaching and administrative work, I am interested in locating alternative relationships and knowledges writers foster when engaging in translations across genres, modalities, and language representations. My dissertation locates these relationships across trajectories of migration and literacy in contemporary Central Asia, including borderlands regions in Northern Kazakhstan, asking how we might attune our approach to transnational literacies to locate moments of friction and displacement generated via decolonial efforts and by both seismic and micro-moments of sociolinguistic and geopolitical change.
