About Linda Nicole Blair

I am Senior Lecturer in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and sciences where I teach literature and writing. I hold a BA in Music, an MA in English, and a Ph. D. in Modern British Literature. My research interests include literary theory, and intersections between literature and music, including how these art forms create a pathway to deep and sustained learning in our lives. My most recent scholarly contribution is Virginia Woolf and the Power of Story: A Literary Darwinist Reading of Six Novels. This book examines the power of Story in human life through the lens of Literary Darwinism. Six of Virginia Woolf's novels provided the case study. The next part of this larger project about the role of the arts in human life will include coursework from the International Blues Scholars Program at Delta State and research at the Blues Archive at the University of Mississippi. I am also a singer-songwriter with a CD entitled Little Queenie.
