Biography

Jennifer Doede completed her B.A. at Simon Fraser University and her M.A. at the University of British Columbia.  She chose the field of literature because she believes that imaginative texts have the transformative power to change the way we understand ourselves and others in the world.  Her pedagogical goal is to awaken her students to the capacity of literature to deepen and enlarge their humanity. Her current research is on the history of the sublime and its connection to the aesthetics of Oscar Wilde.
