Her research interests all circle around novels ”their history, their (women) readers, and their social, educational, aesthetic, and political work. In short, professionally and personally, she likes big books.

She also teaches in the Antonian Scholars Program, the Gryffindor Tower Learning Community, the Catherine Core Curriculum”The Reflective Woman & Global Search for Justice: Immigrant Experience (in New York City), and in UMAIE, St. Kate's travel study consortium, which recently led her to England, Scotland, and Orlando following the Harry Potter novels. She will tell you that the most fun she has had as a professor was compiling and editing A Wizard of Their Age: Critical Essays from the Harry Potter Generation (SUNY 2015) in collaboration with a team of student editors. She also enjoys talking about novels with St. Kate's alumnae in Conversations with Books, a tradition of more than fifty years begun by Professor Catherine Lupori.
