Professional Background

Since joining the UNC Department of English I have risen through the ranks, eight years ago becoming the first woman chair of this department. I am a Victorianist and have published widely on 19th-century British writers. My greatest joy has been working on the poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning, both editing her previously unpublished works and writing critical studies.

How has being an English graduate from Duke University help shape your professional success?

I was in the right place at the right time to get a wonderful job just 10 miles down the road from Duke.
