English professor defends dissertation

November 29, 2012

JACKSONVILLE, IL – Ashley Green, a visiting assistant professor of English at MacMurray College, successfully defended her dissertation earlier this month to complete the requirements for her Ph.D. in English/Literature from Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

Green received her bachelor’s in philosophy from Western Illinois University in 2000 and her master’s from the University of Illinois Springfield in 2003, studying contemporary literature and creative writing.

 For her doctoral work, she studied war literature, concentrating on World War I literature in particular.  Her dissertation, "Trauma Inscribed on the Body in Pat Barker's Regeneration Trilogy," argues that Pat Barker attempts to make a comprehensive observation of trauma through the treatment or maltreatment of her characters.

 She is revising her dissertation for publication and, at MacMurray, teaches developmental reading and the developmental writing sequence and also tutors at the college’s Center for Learning Excellence. She serves on the academic assessment and the retention committees at the college.
