Dr. Curtright researches connections between the Gothic and Modernism across various media. Her current scholarship explores ways in which Edgar Allan Poe's writings and images of this author have influenced architecture, film, and literature from the antebellum United States to modern Japan. To encourage students to think about literature's relationships to other forms of cultural production, she incorporates multimedia into her survey courses and ENGL 1102. In her ENGL 1101, students engage with pressing issues in their communities, such as transportation in Atlanta. With a background in tutoring at Writing and Communication Centers, as well as teaching English courses, Dr. Curtright enjoys working with students, both one-to-one and in class settings, to develop their writing skills.
