The Honors College is pleased to announce that Dr. Lee Ann Westman will serve as Acting Director during the Spring term of 2017, while Timothy Martin take a scheduled sabbatical.
Dr. Westman, who earned her Ph.D. in Humanities at Florida State University, joined the Rutgers-Camden faculty in 2015 as a Visiting Professor in Women’s and Gender Studies. She has recently accepted a position as an Associate Teaching Professor for Arts and Sciences. A specialist in American literature and culture, Dr. Westman teaches courses such as Contemporary Gender Issues, Women and the Arts, and Sexual Identity and American Popular Culture. She is co-editor of the scholarly journal Interdisciplinary Humanities. Dr. Westman is no stranger to the Honors College, having taught a highly successful Honors seminar in the Fall of 2015 on “Women and the Arts in Western Culture.” During the coming Spring she will lead another Honors seminar on the topic of “Art, Literature, and Protest.”
During his sabbatical, Dr. Martin will be working on a book project called “Quotidian Ulysses,” which is a study of the implications of the single-day setting of James Joyce’s landmark novel in the context of “everyday-life” theory in sociology and cultural studies. He returns on July 1.
