Bonnie Gunzenhauser joined John Carroll as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and Professor of English in July of 2020. Prior to coming to John Carroll, she served for seven years as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Roosevelt University in Chicago, where she also spent ten years as a faculty member before moving into administration. She holds a BA from Luther College in English, philosophy, and political science, and an MA and PhD in English from the University of Chicago. Her scholarly interests focus on the literature and culture of England’s long eighteenth century, public humanities, the emergent genres of the long eighteenth century, particularly the novel and political journalism, and the history of reading and of the book. She has edited a book, Reading in History: New Methodologies from the Anglo-American Tradition, and has published and presented widely on intersections between the humanities and the public sphere.
