Christiana Salah is Assistant Professor of English at Hope College, currently on leave as Visiting Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at Kenyon College. In addition to WGS, her main focus area is 19th-Century British Literature. She also pursues research in Disability Studies, and joined the Mellon Grand Challenges Initiative “Going Global, Starting Local: Disability in Contemporary Societies.” She received her PhD in English from the University of Connecticut in 2016. Dr. Salah’s current book project traces the popularity of the Victorian governess figure from the nineteenth century to the present. Her chief scholarly interest lies in revealing how characters who fall in the interstices of stereotypical class and gender divisions — in literature for adults and children, as well as adaptations of both in various media — are particularly useful in revealing cultural currents of fantasy, prejudice, anxiety, and aspiration.
