Ellen Dolgin has been teaching and developing courses at the college level for more than 30 years. Her love of interdisciplinary/intercultural teaching and learning developed from her double major in English and Speech Arts as an undergraduate. Frequently, her literature courses feature the arts of the eras surrounding the readings, and she encourages her students to incorporate this multi-disciplinary vision into their oral presentations and written assignments.
As a teacher/scholar, she enjoys her involvement with professional organizations; through these, she has established friendships as well as professional collaborations. Sharing these experiences with her students is paramount. Her areas of research and conference presentations include modern drama, with particular emphasis on the early 20th century, and contemporary multicultural women writers across genres.
With family and friends, she loves to attend plays, visit museums, and enjoy food and conversation at home and at restaurants, picnic areas, and other people’s homes.
