Dr. Emily M. Hinnov earned her doctorate in English Literature at the University of New Hampshire in 2005. Since that time, she has held faculty appointments at four different universities. As a full time professor, she has taught interdisciplinary humanities, writing, literary modernism, gender studies, film studies, world literature, the Harlem Renaissance, fiction and photography, and British literature from Beowulf to Virginia Woolf.  Most recently, she was Senior Lecturer of English and Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Curriculum at Granite State College. Hinnov is also a scholar in the field of literary modernism. Some of Dr. Hinnov’s previous publications include two journal articles and two book chapters on Virginia Woolf, a chapter on Zora Neale Hurston and photographer James Van Der Zee, a chapter on Sylvia Townsend Warner, a chapter on teaching Nella Larsen, and a chapter on teaching composition. Her monograph, Encountering Choran Community: Literary Modernism, Visual Culture, and Political Aesthetics in the Interwar Years, was published with Susquehanna University Press in 2009. She has several other publications on subjects ranging from the maternally-focused photographs of Tina Modotti to the underrepresented work of Harlem Renaissance era writers Elise Johnson McDougald and Marita O. Bonner to representations of gender and authorship in the work of Robert Louis Stevenson. Most, if not all of her scholarship addresses the application of theory to teaching. Her latest book project is a volume co-edited with Laurel Harris and Lauren M. Rosenblum called Communal Modernisms: Teaching Twentieth-Century Literature and Culture in the Twenty-first Century Classroom (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013).
