Victoria Blythe teaches advanced writing seminars structured around problems of poetics and genre. Her teaching interests also include modern British literature and the poetics of Virginia Woolf, comparative literature and translation studies, as well as critical theory with a focus on the work of Derrida, with whom she was fortunate to study. Coming to teaching from a career in law, Professor Blythe is interested in the nexus of law and literature. Her poetry appears in "The Woodstock Poetry Review," and her publications include a collection of poetry, "Opaque Confession." In 2008 she received the Gallatin Adviser of Distinction Award.
