Kaitlyn Willy is a PhD candidate in English at the University of North Texas, focusing in 20th Century American Literature. Her specific interests in research include Environmental and Agrarian Literature, Dystopian Agriculture, Ethnic Literature, Xicana Feminist Literature, and the intersections between Literature and Spirituality.
In addition to her studies, Kaitlyn is a Teaching Fellow in English Literature, Technical Communication, and the First Year Writing Program at UNT. She has served as the Assistant Director of the Writing Program and continues to work closely with the Writing Program Administration Team. She previously served on the Executive Committee of the Graduate Students in English and helped plan the Critical Voices Graduate Student Conference.
Kaitlyn recently presented a paper at the International Ecopoetics Conference at Perpignan, France on Dystopian Agrarian Fiction and has a forthcoming chapter in an colletion for Rowman and Littlefield's Ecocritical Series on the same topic.
Her dissertation (yet untitled) will explore applications of Chicana feminist authors’ philosophies, particularly Anzaldua’s theory of nepantla, to women’s religious life in the Roman Catholic Church.
