Associate Professor of English
Angela Flury received her Ph.D. in comparative literature, with designated emphases in critical theory and gender studies, from the University of California, Davis. Her interest in fashion studies has led her to teach an upper level course and senior seminar, Fiction, Women, Fashion, the focus of which is the ever complicated relationship of women to fashion in the works of writers like Flaubert, Veblen, Dreiser, Larsen, Wharton, and Winterson. She has also taught a course on the femme fatale in film under the rubric “Women and Literature” (Eng 264). Her translations of excerpts of books by Christa Wolf have been published in Absinthe:New European Writing and PMLA and her most recent publication is a translation of an excerpt from Albrecht Selge’s novel Lucid (with introduction) in a special issue of Reconstruction: Studies in Contemporary Culture on spatial literary studies (vol 14, no 3, 2014)—available at http://reconstruction.eserver.org/Issues/143/contents_143.shtml
Professor Flury is on leave until August, 2015.
