Asian Studies

I earned my BA from Oberlin College and my MA and PhD from The University of Chicago, before joining the SMC faculty in 1999. My major research thus far has focused on national identity in the former British Empire, with particular attention paid to female adolesence and the bildungsroman. I’m currently firmly entrenched in 1953–54, working on a series of articles about the Coronation and subsequent royal tour of Elizabeth II, and a book on the Parker-Hulme murder case, in which two teenaged New Zealand girls killed one of their mothers. My teaching interests include contemporary British and Postcolonial literature, with an emphasis on India and the South Pacific; cultural studies; literature by and about women; and travel writing.
