Stevenson University English Professor Published in Commemorative Book

February 9, 2017 11:30 AM

AM PortraitAdjunct Professor in English at Stevenson’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences Ariana Mashilker, Ph.D., wrote the chapter “Reclaiming the Fisherman: Soul Searching and the Subversive in Oscar Wilde’s Fairy Tales” in the recently published book Quintessential Wilde: His Worldly Place, His Penetrating Philosophy and His Influential Aestheticism.

As an Anglo-Irish literature and drama scholar, Mashilker was invited by the editor to collaborate on the commemorative text, which marked the 160 anniversary of Wilde’s birth.

“After many years writing and lecturing as a Joycean scholar, it was a new experience to publish on Oscar Wilde,” said Mashilker. “The uniqueness of this particular publication, in relation to my general research, might suggest [to students] the benefits and rewards of stepping beyond your comfort zone and trying your hand at something new and familiar. I always try to instill in my students a belief they can accomplish anything to which they set their mind—after all, the only thing holding us back is our own hesitation.”

Mashilker added that she’s honored to have her work shared along such a distinguished collection of Wildean scholars. Mashilker has been teaching at Stevenson University since 2014.
