Amy Lanham (Victorian)
Elizabeth D. Lloyd-Kimbrel
After many years as an ABD, I am returning to the fold to complete a dissertation. My areas of interest are eclectic, with a non-exclusive tilt toward British literature, medievalism, biography, and movies. My BA is from Connecticut College, and I did graduate and postgraduate work at Trinity-Oxford (UMass Summer Seminars), McGill, and York-Centre for Medieval Studies (UK), in addition to UMass Amherst proper. During the intervening time from when I was last a formal denizen of Bartlett Hall, I worked as project manager for a non-profit multimedia company and then, for well over a decade, as executive assistant to a college vice president. Concurrently, I have been a freelance editor and writer with creative and critical work appearing in literary and scholarly journals and biographical dictionaries and encyclopedias. I also serve on the advisory board of Paris Press (Ashfield, MA). ~vide “Puttering about in the Mindfields” -- http://www.ncis.org/linkservid/F3772940-F8A9-EE0E-E744F54E9340FFB1/showMeta/0/

Elise Swinford (Gender Studies/Modernism)
I am a doctoral candidate in English literature and a student in the Advanced Feminist Studies certificate program. My interests include feminist literary theory, performance theory, gender studies, and modernist studies. I am currently in the early stages of writing my dissertation, in which I examine how some modernist texts reflect social anxieties concerning nonnormative gendering as a threat to a sense of national community, especially in times of war when national identity is most tested.
