English, Harrison Hall, Room 109


Professor Emerita of English and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

During her sabbatical leave last year (2016-17), Marnie McInnes worked on three scholarly projects.  Her essay on Walt Whitman's poem "As I Ebb'd with the Ocean of Life" will appear at some point soon in The Walt Whitman Quarterly Review, and "Looking for Louis Agassiz:  A Story of Rocks and Race in Maine" will be published in the Canadian interdisciplinary journal Mosaic.  In July 2017, her article called "Why Geologists Think Glacial Mountains Look Like Sheep" appeared in The Atlantic magazine.

In Fall 2017, Marnie is teaching a Honor Scholar Humanities Seminar called "How to Live:  The Long Tradition of Literary Advice."  In the spring, she will teach an upper level literature course on Walt Whitman, her last class before retiring from DePauw.

Marnie received her B.A. from Stanford University and her Ph.D. in English Literature from Yale.
