Director // Andrea Rehn

 

 

Andrea Rehn is Associate Professor of English and Director of the Whittier Scholars Program. Her research and pedagogy are based in a commitment to postcolonial studies. Her own digital pedagogical practice arose organically through her joy in project-based collaborative learning. Exploring, extending, and experimenting with critical (digital) pedagogies suitable for the liberal arts classroom has become one of her central scholarly interests as well as her mode of teaching. Her current research, supported most recently by a Visiting Fellowship at University of Southampton and Chawton House Library in Spring 2014, focuses on a material history approach to understanding Jane Austen’s readership in the early- to mid-nineteenth century.  Andrea is also co-Editor of Victorian Poetry and Poetics in Context, a cross-institutional wiki hosted by Alison Chapman at University of Victoria. She has published on Conrad, Kipling, Isabella Bird, Jane Austen, and digital pedagogy.
