    Curriculum Vitae

    Medieval literature, rhetoric, mythology


    University of New Mexico, PhD in English: Rhetoric and Writing (2004)
    University of Oregon, MA English: Medieval Studies (1974)
    University of California, Berkeley, BA English Literature (1972)

    I taught for many years at community colleges before entering the doctoral program at the University of New Mexico. After defending my dissertation, I joined the faculty at Eastern Washington University, where I work in the literature, composition and humanities programs.
    My dissertation analyzes the rhetorical strategies of five women from different historical periods, finding commonalities that constitute a discourse strategy characteristic of women's rhetoric. These women - Hildegard of Bingen, Margery Kempe, Aphra Behn, Sojourner Truth and Helene Cixous - created rhetorical strategies that made productive use of their positions at the margins of institutionalized power.
