Lamar University is committed to supporting students, faculty and staff through times of crisis. As we navigate the new coronavirus pandemic together, we all must do our part to slow the spread of the virus. Social distancing, online courses and frequent sanitizing are some ways you can be part of the community effort. Read about Cardinals who are going above and beyond as essential employees.
Amy joined LU in 2009 after a friend who was working at LU encouraged her to apply for an assistant teaching position in the Department of English & Modern Languages. She began her Cardinal career teaching a general philosophy class that all students were required to take. Since that time, she has become an associate professor teaching mythology, Asian literature, British literature and a variety of advanced courses in her research areas, which include Greek myth, modernism, religion and literature, ethics and literature, Asian religions and the scholarship of teaching and learning.
“We’ve always used stories as a way to understand our human experience, especially when you’re going through situations where you really don’t understand what’s going on, where you’re being challenged. We’ve got a lot of different situations right now that are like that for our society and societies around the world where we need to try and make sense of our situation and understand our humanity in the situation.”
