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, the novel, Jane Austen, and eighteenth-century British literature and culture. She has published on Austen, Frances Brooke, pedagogy, and animals in the long eighteenth century. Dr. Wyett is currently working on a book about women novelists' use of the female quixote trope to address anti-novel discourse as well as a project exploring Frances Burney’s Catholic sympathies as part of an emergent eighteenth-century human rights discourse.
