   Professor of Women and Gender Studies
   At the University of Oklahoma since 1994

Professor Bannet teaches courses on British and Transatlantic British-American literature during the Enlightenment, on British Women's Writing, and on Literary and Cultural Studies. She assigns a fairly heavy work load in all her courses, because she wants students to be able think for themselves on an informed basis, and to develop their reading and writing skills. You have been warned!
