Stephanie Scott is a postdoctoral teaching fellow in English. In July 2016, she successfully defended her dissertation, "Beyond National Trauma: Experiential Memory and Epistemic Practices in the Literature of Ireland and Irish-America's Minoritized Populations." More broadly construed, her research interests center on modernist and contemporary Irish writing and the interplay of memory, ethics, and epistemology.
An active member of the departmental community, Stephanie served for two years as president of the Modernist Studies Workshop, an organization that brings emerging and established modernist scholars to campus. She is also a two-time fellow of the Public Writing Initiative, and served for three years on the board of the English Graduate Organization.
Stephanie comes to Penn State after a brief career as a high school English teacher and a two-year appointment as a Fulbright English Language Instructor in Vienna, Austria.
