Julie Warkentin

Coordinator, English and Communications

Julie is the English and Literary Studies Coordinator and has been teaching at Sheridan College since 2009.  In addition to Coordinating duties, Julie teaches a variety of Communications, General Elective, and Degree Breadth courses.  She holds a MA (2009) from Brock University, an Honours BA in English Literature (2008) from Nipissing University, and a Bachelor of Adult Education (2012) from Brock University.  She is currently ABD in her PhD in Interdisciplinary Humanities at Brock.  

Her research adopts a literary-historical perspective and focuses on understanding England’s traumatized national identity in the 17th century as it resulted from the execution of Charles Stuart (Charles I) in 1648/9.  Her dissertation project is an analysis of the theatrical power of textual and speech performances that surrounded the regicide, and considers how England came into a crisis of witnessing that stemmed from the execution of its king.  A PhD in Interdisciplinary Humanities has allowed Julie to pursue her research interests in English Interregnum/Restoration literature, historiography, cultural studies, philosophy, and a variety of psychoanalytic approaches - most notably trauma studies.
