Dr. Alison Graham-Bertolini, Assistant Professor
Office: Minard 318E52
I recently joined the NDSU faculty in a joint appointment with English and Women and Gender Studies. I earned my Master’s of Liberal Arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania, and received my doctorate in English Literature from Louisiana State University (LSU) in 2009.
After finishing my PhD I taught at LSU and Tulane University in New Orleans as a postdoctoral fellow. My first book, Vigilante Women in Contemporary American Fiction, was published by Palgrave Macmillan Press in September, 2011.
My academic interests include contemporary American and post-colonial literature, with a focus on race and gender. I have published articles in the Eudora Welty Review, The Southern Quarterly, and in collections including Southern Exposures: Locations and Relocations of Italian Culture (eds. Alan J. Gravano and Ilaria Serra. Bordighera Press, 2012) and Indian-American Writers: Transnationalisms and Diasporas (eds. Jaspal K. Singh, and Rajendra Chetty. Peter Lang Publishers, 2010).
