Sheila Bauer-Gatsos teaches English courses and freshman- and sophomore-level liberal arts and sciences seminars. Her research focuses on 19th century British literature with a particular interest in female Victorian novelists who also wrote literary and social criticism. She is currently studying Charlotte Mary Yonge’s family chronicles and Margaret Oliphant’s sensation novels. Her dissertation, “Reiteration as Resistance: Performativity in the Novels of Charlotte Yonge, George Eliot, and Margaret Oliphant,” examines the multilayered—sometimes contradictory— readings that can exist within complex texts. She is also interested in research related to teaching composition, particularly in the most effective uses of technology in the classroom.
