Patricia DunnProfessorEnglishCollege of Arts and Sciences


Patricia Dunn teaches courses in English education, the teaching of writing, young adult literature, and disability studies. Her belief is that disabled characters are not well represented in literature and when they are, they are often cast stereotypically and generically. Her latest book examines representations of disability in young adult literature.
