McInnes, Marion K. (Marnie), Ph.D.
English, Harrison Hall, Room 109
Professor of English and Women's Studies
Marnie McInnes received her B.A. from Stanford University and her Ph.D. in English Literature from Yale. At DePauw, Marnie has taught first-year seminars on photography, science writing, women and war, and women’s studies. She teaches writing intensive (W) courses at the sophomore level, along with English literature and humanities courses on topics such as Haiti, time and literature, and American women poets. In spring 2014, she will launch a new Women and Literature topics course, ENG 390: Science, Nature, Environment.
In 2012, Marnie published a couple of articles on photography and literature: “Photographic Documents and Postmodern Fictions: Photobooks by Susan Meiselas and Gregory Crewdson” in the interdisciplinary journal Mosaic; and “A Meditation on Poetry and Photography” in photographies, a new UK journal on the history and theory of the photograph. Inspired by the interdisciplinary essays that her students have written in Science Writing, she is now working on a series of creative nonfiction pieces focusing on granite and geological history.
