I am a PhD candidate in the Department of English at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I teach and research in the field of contemporary American Literature and Critical Race Studies. I am currently finishing my dissertation on multiethnic U.S. road trip literature of the 20th- and 21st- century. This project is inspired by my own love of driving around for extended periods of time, and by my commitment to centering literature by writers of color.

You can find me on Twitter here, at Academia.edu here, and at the UCSB English Department here. You can also contact me by email at nicole.dib@gmail.com.
