About Cheryl Hindrichs

With a Ph.D. in English from The Ohio State University, Dr. Cheryl Hindrichs came to Boise State University as a member of the faculty of the Department of English. She has two master's degrees, in English and Women's Studies, also from Ohio State. Dr. Hindrichs has published articles on Virginia Woolf, American poet Hilda Doolitle (H.D.), and Germaine Dulac, as well as on late modernist literature, and gender and film studies. She studies how writing style and innovation have been influenced by social, economic, and political tensions, shifting classes, new technologies, and gender ideologies. She also looks at how writers used forms from other arts (music, painting, and cinema) in their writing to respond to the culture of their time. Her current research focuses on the role of illness in the aesthetics and ethics of modernist fiction.
In 2010, Dr. Hindrichs was named a recipient of Boise State’s inaugural Arts & Humanities
Fellowship, allowing her time and space to work on a book manuscript on the role of physical illness in modernist fiction titled “Pandemic Modernity: The Aesthetics and Ethics of Illness in Modernist Literature.” She is also working to develop courses that will enrich students’ research and service-learning opportunities, an Osher Lifelong Learning Institute short course that will strengthen contacts and cooperation with the Boise community, and a reading group and lecture series that will support collaboration among faculty and health care professionals.
