Hello Current and Prospective Honors Students! My name is Emily Hill and I work as an Honors Program Lecturer. My academic background is from the University of North Dakota (English and Honors Bachelors of Arts and Political Science Minor 2008; English Masters of Arts 2011). Although I am a new lecturer to the program as of August 2013, I have a long history with Honors. I was a member of the program throughout my undergraduate career as well as served as an Honors Resident Assistant in Johnstone/Fulton Hall (2005-2008) and a student member of the Honors Program Committee (2007-2008).
Some of my academic interests include: composition and rhetoric studies, creative fiction/nonfiction writing, modern and postmodern American literature, medieval women's literature, film, politics, music, religion and women, and feminist theory. Along with my teaching commitments, I also assist the Honors Program with student advisement, prospective student recruitment, student orientation, co-advise the Honors Program Student Organization (HPSO) and advise the Honors Forum (our student literary publication).
