Dr. Barbara Paul-Emile

Professor of English and the Maurice E. Goldman Distinguished Professor of Arts and Sciences, received her BA and MA from New York University and her Ph. D. from the University of Colorado. Professor Paul-Emile's work centers on 19th century English literature, Caribbean literature, and African-American literature. This breadth allows her to combine her interest in myth and third world literature with her knowledge of European colonial literary influences. Her expertise and enthusiasm in the classroom was recognized at the national level when she was named Massachusetts Professor of the Year in 1994 by the Carnegie Foundation and the Council for the Support and Advancement of Education. While producing numerous articles on professional topics, she has also engaged in extensive creative writing. Her voice in Caribbean literature is an original one with cross-cultural appeal. She has completed a novel, "Seer", published by Sunstar, 2004. Her collection of poetry, "The Dance of Life: Poems for the Spirit", was published by Eunoia Press, April, 2005. She is currently at work on "Spirit of the Warrior Woman" and a collection of her published short fiction.
