Dr. Teekell is excited to be leading the CNU Study Abroad in Glasgow, Scotland, in Fall 2018! Please contact her if you are interested.

Originally from Louisiana, Dr. Teekell's academic career took her to Memphis, TN; Dublin, Ireland; St. Louis, MO; and Cumberland Gap, TN, before her arrival at CNU. She serves as Treasurer of the American Conference for Irish Studies, and her first book, Emergency Writing: Irish Literature, Neutrality and the Second World War, will be published by Northwestern University Press in May 2018. She keeps tea and chocolate in her office, and can often be found on Thursday afternoons chasing her two sons around the CNU Farmers Market.

Dr. Teekell is on maternity leave in Fall 2017, but she is available to meet by appointment; just email.
