Professor Annie Ingram is an Americanist who specializes in the nineteenth-century and rambles over more extensive territory. Her research and teaching interests are largely interdisciplinary, including ecocriticism, environmental literature, American studies, ethnic American literatures (especially Native American), and gender studies. She is committed to experiential learning pedagogies and has incorporated community-based projects and wilderness leadership training into her courses. She is co-editor of Coming Into Contact: Explorations in Ecocritical Theory and Practice(University of Georgia, 2007) and has published articles on nineteenth-century American women writers, twentieth-century American environmental literature, service learning and ecocomposition, and contemporary environmental justice literature. She received her B.A. at Stanford, her M.A. at Monterey Institute of International Studies and her Ph.D. at Emory. Her most recent research project combines her interests in women writers and environmental studies in an investigation of literature and material culture focusing on flowers. She currently serves as coordinator of Environmental Studies at Davidson.
