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.

CRN: 22387 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Anne E. Roth-Reinhardt This course considers the necessity of an engaged, representative citizenry for a healthy democracy. Course readings, class discussion, formal and informal writing, and your participation in a public work project will address the role of the individual in shaping the community and the responsibility of the community toward its populace. We will begin by examining various strategies for growing and maintaining healthy communities. Then, we will listen to the diverse voices that make up our community, both local and national, and consider the benefits of empowerment and the importance of representation. Throughout the semester, our study will consider the impact of community strategies and practices in our public work, listen to the voices that make up our own neighborhoods, and measure the health of our democracy by assessing the power of its people. Possible texts to be studied may include E.L. Doctorow's RAGTIME and Anna Deavere Smith's drama TWILIGHT: LOS ANGELES 1992 as well as selections from works by Hannah Arendt, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and Ralph Ellison.
