My name is Madeline Scully and I am an English Literature and International Affairs double major with a double minor in French and Women's and Gender Studies. I am originally from a small town in Alaska and came to PLU on the advice of my high school English teacher and quite a bit of google searching.  My area of interest in English Literature is Jane Austen (which you will soon see on this website). I am particularly interested in Austen as a constructed character and how we understand her in contemporary readings. Besides Austen I have found myself gravitating towards the themes of: Gender, Agency, Communication, and Place. I hope you enjoy this snapshot of the work I have done in my time at PLU.
