Professor Churchill specializes in modern British and American poetry, modernism, periodical studies, gender and sexuality, and literature and the visual arts. Her book, The Little Magazine Others and the Renovation of Modern American Poetry, examines correlations between modernist poetic forms and modern constructions of gender and sexuality. She has also co-edited a collection of essays entitled Little Magazines & Modernism: new approaches.
Professor Churchill translates her interests in architecture and visual arts into the classroom, where she has taught courses such as "The Architecture of the Essay,” “Visual Pleasures,” and "Art on Art.” She also teaches an introductory course on modernism (ENG 294), which includes poetry, fiction, drama, and film, as well as art, music, and dance and an upper-level methods seminar on modernism and magazines, in which students engage in collaborative research projects. Students in this seminar also contribute to the development of an expanding database, Little Magazines and Modernism: a select bibliography.
