Shannon Finck is a brand new instructor of English at the University of West Georgia! She completed a Ph.D. in 20th-Century American Literature and Contemporary Critical Theory at Georgia State University in 2014 and also holds an M.F.A. in Creative Nonfiction from Georgia College & State University. She has published both critical and creative work in such journals as a/b: Autobiography Studies, LIT Literature Interpretation Theory, FUGUE, and The Journal of Modern Literature. Shannon's non-academic, but not uncritical, interests include trashed out 60s garage music, vintage Japanese motorcycles, and guerrilla gardening (though she would not call herself a green thumb). General teaching and research interests include: postmodernism, gender studies, feminism, ecocriticism, theory & philosophy, experimental writing, life-writing, and pop culture.
