Marlowe Miller is a Professor of English at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Author of the text Masterpieces of British Modernism, Miller specializes in modernist literature and focuses particularly on women writers. She also does research and teaching in contemporary women’s writing and composition and rhetoric. Professor Miller has published articles on Virginia Woolf, contemporary women writers like Sherley Anne Williams and Maxine Hong Kingston, and on teaching literature and writing.

Most recently, Dr. Miller has worked with the Emerging Scholars program to continue her exploration of the way domestic interiors figure in the work of modernist women writers from Elizabeth Bowen to Virginia Woolf. The role that the domestic interior plays in the texts of numerous modernist women writers reflects important historical and gendered interrogations of Gaston Bachelard’s subtle and yet profound revelation that “the house is a nest for dreaming, a shelter for imagining.” Miller is currently writing about the roles that memory, nostalgia, and imagination play in Virginia Woolf’s last novel, Between the Acts and several stories by Katherine Mansfield.
