English Professors Publish Works

Dr. Christopher Flavin, Associate Professor of English, authored a book titled Constructions of Feminine Identity in the Catholic Tradition: Inventing Women. The book examines the ways in which late classical medieval women's writings serve as a means of emphasizing both faith and social identity within a distinctly Christian, and later Catholic, tradition, which remains a major part of the understanding of faith and the self. Flavin focuses on key texts from the lives of desert saints and the Passio Perpetua to the autobiographies of Counter-Reformation women like Teresa of vila to illustrate the connections between the self and the divine.
