Originally from the South Shore of Massachusetts, Jennifer Krause has worked at Emory & Henry since the fall of 2016. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from Sewanee: The University of the South, is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and earned her PhD in English from Vanderbilt University. Jennifer’s research interests cover a wide range of texts in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, though her main focus is American literature, 20th and 21st century postmodernism, Latinx literature, and science fiction. She is currently working on a book that looks at postcyberpunk science fiction in relation to postcolonial theory. Some of Jennifer’s courses at Emory & Henry include Writing 101, Contemporary World Literature, a Great Works course about Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and a Transitions course that focuses on zombies.
