Hitched: Marriage in America
Feingold earned her BA from Oberlin College in 1987, and her PhD from The University of Chicago in 1998. Her major research thus far has focused on female adolesence and national identity in the contemporary bildungsroman. She is currently firmly entrenched in 1953-54, working on an article about the Coronation of Elizabeth II, and a book on the Parker-Hulme murder case, in which two teenaged New Zealand girls killed one of their mothers. Her teaching interests include contemporary British and Postcolonial literature; cultural studies; literature by and about women; travel writing; literature and science; and children's literature.
