APSU professor Jill Franks publishes new book on British and Irish women writers

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – A few years ago, Dr. Jill Franks, Austin Peay State University professor of English, decided to change up a course she taught on Irish literature. Instead of focusing on that country’s noted male authors, such as James Joyce and William Butler Yeats, she opted to teach about Ireland’s underrepresented female authors, including Elizabeth Bowen and Edna O’Brien.

Franks had recently taught a similar class on female British writers, and with these subjects fresh on her mind, she began noticing fascinating distinctions between the two cultures and how they handled the evolution of the women’s movement.
