Biographical Statement:

“An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.” Gandhi

Phoebe has come to recognize the truth of Gandhi’s wisdom and so her interests are focused on how to put her personal commitments to equality, justice and ecological / social sustainability into practice through her research, teaching, activism and art, all of which she sees as inseparable. For example, she is currently co-editing a book, World Turning: New Perspectives on Race, Class, Gender and Global Climate Change (2015) that incorporates works from academics, activists, poets, artist, and play writers from around the world. She lives with her wife Tina and two cats in Willimantic, CT.
