Amy Woodbury Tease earned her B.A. in English from Boston College and her M.A. and Ph.D. from Tufts University.
At Norwich, she teaches a wide range of courses from writing to modernism, contemporary British fiction, world literatures, and film, often with a focus on media and surveillance culture.
Her current research explores the relationship between art, politics, and the rise of surveillance societies in the postwar period (1950-present). Prof. Woodbury Tease will be on independent study leave in Spring 2018 to begin work on her monograph, Postwar Modernism and the Rise of Surveillance Culture, where she will examine texts written and produced in the immediate aftermath of the Second World War through the first decade of the twenty-first century to establish the role that literature, art, and media play in the construction of a growing—and globalized—culture of surveillance.
Woodbury Tease is also committed to interdisciplinary teaching and scholarship, co-teaching a seminar titled The Other Side of Innovation for the Honors Program with Prof. Travis Morris, of the Criminal Justice program, and to providing students with opportunities to conduct independent research both inside and outside of her classrooms. She has served as the Undergraduate Research Program director at Norwich since 2015 and was recently elected to a three-year term as councilor in the Arts & Humanities Division of the national Council on Undergraduate Research, which advocates for the significance and advancement of undergraduate research across the United States.
