I frequently engage in new topics as they interest me, especially for short pieces for Worn Through. I have lectured on the history of shoes for a small group in Oakland, California and have written book reviews for several scholarly journals. For CSA newsletters, I’ve also explored various aspects of publishing as a fashion historian, reviewed books, and interviewed authors and experts.
