TCC Hosting Fulbright Scholar from Northern Ireland

September 17, 2019

Dr. Kendra Reynolds, a Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence from Northern Ireland, joins TCC for the 2019-20 academic year.

Reynolds will teach a Spring 2020 Honors ENGL 1213 class and be on TCC’s campuses for both the fall and spring semesters delivering public presentations and participating in the life of the College.

Like TCC’s previous Fulbright Scholars, Reynolds will split her time between TCC and the University of Tulsa, where she will teach creative writing courses. Reynolds earned her Ph.D. in English from Ulster University, Northern Ireland, from the School of English, History and Politics (PhD Title: Space, Time and Bodies: The Feminist Architecture of Postmodern Anti-Tales).

Reynolds’s expertise includes 21st century literature, gender inequality and conflict, and marginalized and exploited groups. She is presently chairwoman for Women Aloud NI, an organization that promotes “women’s writing and voices in the post-conflict society of Northern Ireland.” She has taught writing and literature at Ulster University, and has tutored secondary school students who were struggling with English language and literature classes. She also teaches creative writing classes for adults through libraries in Northern Ireland.

Dr. Douglas Price, TCC director for global learning, has led the effort to bring Fulbright Scholars to the College.

“It is a tremendous gift to the institution to have an individual from another world area spend such a significant amount of time sharing perspectives on literature and writing with faculty and students. Dr. Reynolds will be a catalyst for our efforts to forge and sustain academic connections with Ulster University,” says Price.
