Bio/Research

Karen Waldron sees herself first and foremost as teacher and mentor. She has been at COA since 1995 and spent ten years as an academic dean before returning to full-time teaching in 2008. Her research on 19th and 20th century American women's and minority literature is highly interdisciplinary and she has a wide diversity of literary, historical, and scientific passions, particularly the exploration of otherness and consciousness in narrative form and the power of language to represent and transform.

Karen received her B.A. in Literature and Philosophy from Hampshire College in 1974, an M.A. in English Literature from the University of Massachusetts/Boston in 1988, a second M.A. in Women's Studies from Brandeis University in 1993, and the Ph.D. in English and American Literature from Brandeis in 1994. Karen earned several teaching fellowships while a graduate student at Brandeis and from 1993 to 1995 she was an adjunct and then visiting faculty member at both Boston College and Brandeis University.
