About Deborah Laycock

After holding a position at the University of Iowa, Deborah Laycock, a specialist in Restoration and eighteenth-century literature, came to Kenyon College in 1991. She has since developed Canadian literature as a field for research and teaching.
Laycock is currently completing a book manuscript entitled An Eighteenth-Century Sense of Place: The Urban Pastoral and has begun work on a project examining gender and metamorphosis in early modern culture, an early version of which has appeared in an essay in Textual Bodies: Changing Boundaries of Literary Representation (SUNY Press, 1997). She has served as the Chair of the Committee on Academic Standards and has twice served as resident director of the Kenyon-Exeter Program at the University of Exeter.
