Email: akmcclellan@plymouth.edu

  I am a Women’s Studies late bloomer, taking my first courses only as a graduate student and ultimately earning graduate certification. However, I’ve always had an interest in women writers; as a teenager, I read everything from the Bronte sisters to Margaret Mitchell to Pearl S. Buck. This concentration continued in my undergraduate thesis on Virginia Woolf and on to my dissertation on 20th century British women writers. While I don’t teach many Women’s Studies classes at PSU, I address gender and sexuality issues in all of my English classes; particularly, my background in feminist epistemology affects what I teach, how I teach, and why I teach. I’ve been a member of the Women’s Studies Council at PSU since I arrived in 2005, and I have served as its chair since 2007
