Faculty and Staff of Norwich University

Portriat of Anne Summers

Anne Summers received her B.A. from Barnard College, Columbia University, and her Ph.D. from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. 

She was a Graduate Council Fellowship recipient at Stony Brook and holds an additional graduate certificate in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

Before joining the Norwich faculty in 2019, she taught undergraduate courses in writing and literature at Stony Brook University and Manhattan College. She has also worked extensively with high school students through pre-college programs at Columbia University’s School of Professional Studies. Her research focuses on connections between sexuality and perception in nineteenth-century literature and she has published articles on Henry James, Vernon Lee, and Olive Schreiner. She is currently at work on a book project that examines how the relationship between human character and environment in Victorian literature was shaped by emerging scientific theories on perception and aesthetics in the late nineteenth century. At Norwich, she teaches courses in first-year writing and literature.
