Erin Keating Receives PhD and Dean's Convocation Medal

June 14, 2012

Dr. Erin Keating's thesis is a theoretically informed study of two popular late-Restoration genres — pathetic tragedy and secret history. In effect, she is writing a new literary history of the late Restoration, one that fully acknowledges the period's lack of boundaries between theatrical stage and printed page, between celebrity watchers and readers, and between the political, the exemplary, and the scandalous. 

A SSHRC Canada Graduate scholar, Dr. Keating has been an active member of the Simon Fraser English Department as a graduate teaching assistant and a PhD representative in the English Department's Graduate Caucus. She passed both her field exams and her PhD dissertation defense with distinction, and has shared her research at conferences in Canada, the United States and England. Notably, she presented part of her research at the British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies annual meeting at St. Hugh's College, Oxford.

Dr. Keating recently had an article published in the Journal of Popular Culture and has another publication under review with the journal Restoration.

She is currently teaching courses at Simon Fraser University and Kwantlen Polytechnic University and plans to pursue a career as a professor of 18th century literature.

On behalf of SFU, we congratulate Dr. Keating on her achievements which are being recognized with the award of the Dean of Graduate Studies Convocation Medal for being SFU's most outstanding graduate student from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
