Bonnie Rudner is a member of the English department where she specializes in teaching fairy tales and myths, both old and new versions. She believes deeply in the poetic justice in the tales, and teaches them partly as a reminder to us all that justice is attainable. In addition, she teaches myths and fairy tales because they are both the original form of entertainment and wonderfully enjoyable. She believes in applying a wide range of critical approaches including jungian, feminist, eco-feminist, freudian, and anything that helps students explore the wonder of the art form.
A native of New Jersey, she is a devoted follower of Bruce Springsteen.
