Dr. Kisha G. Tracy
Hello and welcome!
I am an Associate Professor of English Studies, specializing in premodern British and world literatures, as well as Co-Coordinator of the Center for Teaching and Learning, at Fitchburg State University in Fitchburg, MA. I received my Ph.D. in Medieval Studies from the University of Connecticut in 2010. My first book is available from Palgrave, entitled Memory and Confession in Middle English Literature, and explores how the traditional medieval relationship between memory and confession provides a valuable framework for understanding the employment of recollection in various Middle English literary texts. My second disciplinary research interest is medieval disabilities, particularly mental illness. In addition, I do a lot of research on encouraging student investment in learning and information literacy in higher education. I am in the middle of a teaching and learning book project entitled Students Are People Too.
