Dr. Danine Farquharson
Danine Farquharson is more than a gifted English professor embarking on a unique research path.
Sure, her study of 20th-century Irish literature has found that the issues of masculinity and violence are not only important to Ireland, but to the contemporary world outside of Ireland.
After all, she's found that the connection to, and combination of Newfoundland literature and Irish drama is one of the great bonuses that's allowed her to live in Newfoundland and teach at Memorial.
But Dr. Farquharson also brings a first-hand understanding of graduate studies at Memorial to her work as graduate officer for the Department of English Language and Literature.
She studied for both her MA and PhD here at Memorial. Her experiences allow her to see things from a grad students perspective. She works to sustain the same environment that she was a part of as a grad student: great students and faculty, and a chance to live and work in one of the most amazing cities in the world.
