Welcome to the professional website for Rebekah Fitzsimmons.
I am a Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow in the Writing and Communication Program, in the School of Literature, Media and Communication at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I completed my PhD in English Literature at the University of Florida in 2015. Please see the About Me page for more details.
My research agenda includes children’s and young adult literature, genre conventions, highbrow/lowbrow taste distinctions in American culture, best sellers, adaptation theory, histories of childhood, and utopian/dystopian literature and theory.
My teaching experience includes histories of childhood, critical approaches to children’s literature, canonical children’s literature texts, American literature post Civil War, theories of utopia, introductions to research writing, and technical communication.
