Maureen Kravec

I earned my B.A., in Humanities and M.A. and Ph.D. in English at Binghamton University.  I have been a mentor/faculty member in Arts and Humanities at SUNY Empire State College since 1994.  Currently, I am based in northern New York near Fort Drum, Watertown, and St. Lawrence County (where I live).  My interests include poetry, especially from the Romantic era to the present, American literature, adult learning, and disability studies. I also study how people learn writing, and I enjoy fantasy literature, especially the ways in which it is reinterpreted by different cultures and generations to tell their significant stories and reflect their values.
