Angela Fowler is a lecturer at Auburn University at Montgomery where she teaches English Composition courses, with the occasional survey literature class. Her research interests lie in nineteenth-century literature, Sherlock Holmes, and gothic literature. She often injects popular culture themes into her composition courses, as she considers media literacy vital to writing and thinking.
Angela graduated from Mississippi State University in 2005 with a B.A. in English and in 2007 with an M.A. in English with an emphasis on creative writing. She taught at Mississippi State for a year before she was accepted into the doctoral program at Auburn University, where she graduated with a Ph.D in English in 2014. Her dissertation was titled “Arthur Conan Doyle and British Cosmopolitan Identity: Knights, Detectives, and Mediums.” She has also published the article “’The Great unifying force:’: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Spiritualist British Commonwealth” for English Literature in Transition.
Angela is currently working on a scholarly companion to Arthur Conan Doyle for McFarland Publications.
