"On sabbatical leave" 2012-2013
Professor Doyle′s fields of teaching and research interest include Spanish language, second language acquisition, cultural studies, women authors of 19th and 20th century Spain, post-Spanish Civil War narrative, Golden Age drama, gender studies, film studies, and fantastic and gothic narrative. Prof. Doyle’s current research focuses on the role of fantasy in the construction of gender and narrative authority in works by female authors during the Franco regime. Several of her advanced literature courses are cross-listed in the Gender and Sexuality Studies Program. She has accompanied groups of students to Spain and Mexico, and looks forward to traveling with Rhodes students to Ecuador one day. As a native Chicagoan, she spends a good deal of time each winter hoping for snow, but the Memphis climate often disappoints her.
