Dr. Chris Buttram

PhD Columbia University

Raised in Tennessee, Chris went to Emory University, taught high school in Maryland, and then conducted her graduate work at Columbia University. After two years in Seattle, she worked as a professor in Texas until she joined the faculty of WSU in 2000.

Though her teaching interests range widely, her field of specialization is 20th-Century British Literature with secondary concentrations in related areas. Most of Chris's research concerns T.S. Eliot, on whose writing she has published in several journals; she is currently at work on a book about Eliot and the human body.
