Jodi L. Wyett earned her B.A. at DePauw University and both her M.A. and Ph.D. at Wayne State University. She teaches upper- and lower-division courses on women's literature, feminist theory, gender studies, cultural studies, the novel, and eighteenth-century British literature. She is also interested in representations of animals in fiction and speculative fiction, particularly feminist utopias. She has published on lapdogs in eighteenth-century literature and culture and her articles on eighteenth-century novelist Frances Brooke have appeared in journals such as Eighteenth-Century Fiction and The Eighteenth-Century Novel. Dr. Wyett’s current research focuses on eighteenth-century women readers, investigating the significance of the figure of the woman reader for novels in relation to women's actual reading practices.
