Caitlin Kelly has taught a wide range of courses in academic writing, multimodal composition, and British literature. In addition she has extensive tutoring experience, and has worked with undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral writers across the disciplines. Kelly received her PhD in English from the University of Missouri and an MA in English from the University of Tennessee, focusing on British literature and culture of the (very) long eighteenth century. Her work focuses on the intersections of print and religious cultures, especially in regard to the experiences of women. Kelly’s current projects examine the works of the evangelical novelist Mary Brunton and the significance of private devotion in Samuel Richardson’s novel Pamela. Dedicated to undergraduate teaching, Caitlin also presents and writes about pedagogical tools and strategies, both digital and analog. She frequently presents her work at conferences including the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, Southeastern American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, and the British Women Writers Conference. In addition to traditional scholarship, Caitlin has also contributed to the blogs Multimodal Mondays and Pedagogy and American Literary Studies.
