Welcome to the home page of Rebecca Phillips, emeritus professor of English. (For anyone not familiar with academic language, that means that I am retired but still teach the occasional class and am more or less a member of the department.) If you want to see what my courses are/were like, you can find syllabi and most of the handouts for my current (and most other) classes here.
