Dr. Jeanne Armstrong passed away in November, 2017. Below is her SelectedWorks page.
Since I have a masters degree in Library Science and a doctorate in Comparative Cultural Studies from University of Arizona, my teaching and scholarship has been diverse and interdisciplinary, encompassing librarianship, women studies, cultural studies and Irish studies. I have been a faculty member at Western Washington University since 1997 and a professor since 2009.
Previous employment includes Seattle Central Community College, Seattle Pacific University, Arizona State Museum at the University of Arizona and Chicago Public Library. At the Arizona State Museum, I was the archivist and special collections curator. My doctorate and my work at the Chicago Public Library involved diversity programming and post-colonial studies in Irish and American ethnic literatures.
