Pamela Buck, Ph.D.
Pamela Buck joined Sacred Heart University as an Assistant Professor of English in the fall of 2010. She received her B.A. magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Wellesley College in 1997, her M.A. from the University of Chicago in 1998, and her Ph.D. from Tufts University in 2008.
Dr. Buck’s current research focuses on British Romantic women writers and material culture during the French Revolution and Napoleonic period. Her doctoral dissertation explored how women writers use the souvenir, an object of memory and exchange, to circulate revolutionary ideas and affect political thought in Britain. She has given papers at international Romanticism conferences, a women writers conference at Jane Austen’s family estate in England, and more locally at Harvard University. Her article “From Russia with Love: Souvenirs and Political Alliance in Martha Wilmot’s Russian Journals” is forthcoming in Objects of Inquiry and Exchange: Eighteenth-Century Thing Theory in a Global Context from Ashgate Press.
At Sacred Heart, Dr. Buck teaches academic writing and British literature courses for the English department as well as Literary Expressions of the Human Journey in the Common Core program. She is also involved in the Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society.
