CV

My graduate training and primary interest is in early-American literature and they way our stories influence how we think about the nation and ourselves as Americans.  I’ve also become increasingly involved in community-engaged learning and enjoy teaching literature that challenges dominant paradigms.

Although I often have my nose in a book, I enjoy being active and spend my free time biking, running, swimming … anything, really. I’ve lived in Saint Paul for over 20 years and love taking part in all that our city has to offer.

ENGL 214 - L01 American Authors I See Details * *
CRN: 30427 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Anne E. Roth-Reinhardt Where does the popular perception of America as the “New World” come from? How could slavery flourish in a land idealizing freedom? Why were immigrants so feared and reviled? Why did expansionism push out some and make millionaires of others? Such questions will be explored in a chronological framework through extensive readings from the beginnings of the American literary tradition to the turn of the twentieth century. Threaded throughout the literature are themes such as religious identity, political reform, race, slavery, war, gender, and industrialization. This course fulfills the Historical Perspectives requirement in the English major and counts as a Writing Across the Curriculum Writing to Learn course in the core curriculum. Please note that this class is half in-class (4 hours/week) and half online. Prerequisites: ENGL 201, 202, 203 or 204.
