Personal and course website:
Ruth Feingold joined the St. Mary's faculty in 1999, after earning her B.A. from Oberlin College, and her M.A. and Ph.D. from The University of Chicago. Her major research centers on national identity, place, and space in postcolonial nations; she has a particular focus on New Zealand and Australia, India, and contemporary multiethnic Britain. She has published essays and book chapters on the New Zealand authors Margaret Mahy and Elizabeth Knox, on Twentieth-century Australasian literary nationalism, on the Coronation and royal tours of Elizabeth II, and on British novelist A.S. Byatt. She is currently working on two projects: an ongoing study of colonial and post-colonial girlhood and coming of age, and a book about the Parker-Hulme case, a 1954 murder in New Zealand. Her teaching interests include contemporary postcolonial and British literature; literature by and about women; travel writing; and children's literature.
