About Dr. Mary Louise Hill:

Mary Louise Hill holds a Ph.D. in Performance Studies from New York University, an M.A. in fiction writing from Syracuse University, and a B.A. in English from Cleveland State University. Her research interests include the history of technology and its impact on performance, multi-cultural performance and drama, feminist performance and drama, semiotics and phenomenology. Her dissertation, When The Voice Must Be The Body: Feminism and Radio Drama earned her honors at N.Y.U.; chapters from it have appeared in TDR: The Drama Review and Women and Performance. Recently, her scholarship has focused on methods of integrating the web into the writing and literature classroom.  In 2012, she chaired a panel at the NCTE’s Conference for College Composition and Communication devoted to web applications in writing classrooms; her paper dealt with cross-cultural wiki projects.  In the past, she presented papers on feminism, sound theory, radio, and performance in the U.S.A., Turkey, and South Africa. She has taught at Syracuse University, New York University, Onondaga Community College, LeMoyne College, Alcorn State University (Mississippi), and Baskent University (Ankara, Turkey).

Dr. Hill also writes fiction; recent publications include “Hayati’s Box” in the Spring 2009 issue of . . . ellipsis  and “When Addie Died” in the Summer 2013 issue of The Gettysburg Review.  She is also the campus Fulbright Representative.

Dr. Hill is very grateful to her colleagues and students for choosing her as the 2013 recipient of the Dr. Brian R. Shero Teaching Excellence and Campus Leadership Award.
