Teaching Women’s Studies courses is a pleasure. I thoroughly enjoy being a part of the outstanding caliber of work produced by students in this program, students who are among the most engaged and enthusiastic scholars at Plymouth.

Although my primary area of teaching and study at PSU is creative writing (poetry, in particular), I have taught Women in Contemporary American Culture, Women and Their Environments, and a special topics course on Women in Popular Culture. I have been a member of the WSC for five years, ever since I joined the faculty here. I hadn’t really thought much about women’s studies as a discipline until I was working on my Ph.D. at the University of Nebraska , where they have a great program. I took graduate courses like 20th Century Lesbian Literature and The Rhetoric of Women Writers, and taught Women in Popular Culture several semesters there. I am also an advisor to AWARE, our campus women’s group, a member of the Women of Words, a local women’s writing group, and a member of the PSU Task Force Against Homophobia.
