Greetings Mathey students! This year, I will be starting my 11th year at Princeton, and my 9th year as a Director of Studies. Before coming to Princeton I was a professor at Kalamazoo College in Michigan, where I taught American literature, 20th-century poetry and poetics, creative writing, women's studies, and community-based learning. I've also taught at Rutgers University and Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, as well as in Princeton's Writing Program, where my seminars have included "The Politics of Personal Narrative" and "Poetry and the Public Sphere."
At Mathey, I look forward to meeting students from all over the country and the world. As a military kid, I lived all around the country, from Florida to California to Michigan, with several years in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. My husband, Kevil Duhon, is a Louisiana Cajun and Assistant Executive Director of the New Jersey Senate Democratic Office. We spend our leisure time entertaining our daughters Clara (12) and Margaret (10), who you will see in the dining hall eating lots of soft-serve ice cream.
Please stop by the College office in Mathey to say hello, discuss your academic plans and passions, and ask any questions you may have about departments and resources on campus. In addition to academic advising, I help students develop arts and cultural programs-- such as Mathey Nights Out at McCarter Theater, The Firestone Society, and our Writers Studio in Blair Tower--and I look forward to hearing your ideas and helping make them a reality.
