Spring spent years thinking, teaching, and wandering about the West Coast and its
sundry borders, in her travels and as Editor of pacific REVIEW, A West Coast Arts
Review Annual. Like her studies, her publications ground academic interests in lived
experience: "Todo Hombre: Testing the Mettle of Man, Machismo, and Marianismo" traces
gender performance in Latino theatre. She explores the commodification of eating and
ethnicity in "Of Cabbages and Kings: On Reading Food Culture and Other Compositions."
Recently returned to Tennessee, Spring continues to critically eye the humanities
and the world around her.
