My research interests include rhetorical theory and Continental philosophy, narrative and identity, exile and transnationalism, Eastern European societies, and controversy. I teach courses on contemporary rhetorical theory, argument, research methods, international communication, and narrative theory. I am the author of Yesterday's Self: Nostalgia and the Construction of Personal Identity (Rowman and Littlefield 2002) and Paul Ricoeur: Tradition and Innovation in Rhetorical Theory (SUNY 2006), and the editor of Interpretation and Its Objects: Studies in the Philosophy of Michael Krausz (Rodopi 2004) and (with Richard Howells and Judith Schachter) of Outrage! Art, Controversy, and Society (Palgrave MacMillan 2012). I serve on the editorial board of Rhetoric Society Quarterly, Storyworlds, and Etudes Ricoeuriennes/Ricoeur Studies.
