Aside my work in memoir, I have a passion for history and social issues:
Wrote and illustrated “The Missing Cheese” for Colonial Comics: New England 1620â€“1750. It exploresÂ courtship, marriage, and how they influenced women’s entrepreneurial aspirationsÂ in Colonial America. Fulcrum Publishing, October 2014.
Also wrote “A Lonely Line” forÂ Colonial Comics: New England 1750-1775, illustrated by Carey Pietsch (The Adventure Zone,Â Lumberjanes, Adventure Time: Marceline Gone Adrift). It offers a glimpse at the life of Molly Ockett, an important historical figure and liaisonÂ between the Abenaki and British settlersÂ from the mid-1700s to her death in 1816. January 2017.
Fair Use Comics
Co-createdÂ various comics on the history of fair use in the United StatesÂ with artist Jackie Roche and librarian-lawyer Kyle K. Courtney for Harvard Library’s Office for Scholarly Communication’sÂ Fair Use Week. February 2015, 2016, & 2017. Read them all here.
Interviewed Lindy West for a comic I illustrated for Bitch‘s summer 2018 invisibility issue. Read it here.
Co-wrote and illustrated a graphic resource on an important (and particularly interesting) moment in the Spanish conquest of the Inca: the Dialogue of Cajamarca.Â This project was made possible by the Lasky-Barajas Deanâ€™s Innovation Fund. 2014-2015 academic year.

Dr. Legnani and I also co-wrote and illustrated “The Civility of Savagery” on shipwrecked conquistador Pedro Serrano for the October 2014 issue of Symbolia magazine, Deep Trouble. (Cover illustration by me, as well.)
