Writing Seminar Faculty
Amanda Irwin Wilkins
Amanda Irwin Wilkins is interested in literature from between the wars, particularly narratives that imagine war from the home front. She explores the ways in which writers navigate the aftermath of collective or individual trauma and use historical analogies to make sense of the present and future. In addition to teaching a Writing Seminar on memory, she also occasionally ventures further afield to co-teach a writing-intensive Geosciences course on climate change.
