Kristina L. Hochwender earned her Bachelor of Arts from Cornell College, and her Master of Arts and PhD from Washington University in St. Louis. Since 2007, she has taught literature at the University of Evansville, where she also currently serves as the director of general education. She was recognized with the Dean’s Teaching Award in 2017. Alongside her interest in literature for children, her research centers on the Victorian clerical novel, and particularly the ways in which the clergyman – in the words of Samuel Butler, “a kind of human Sunday” – mediates national and religious identities and crises in novels that captured the Victorian imagination throughout the latter nineteenth century.
