Professor Alicia Carroll received her PhD from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. A specialist in Victorian Studies and ecocriticism, she welcomes the opportunity to mentor graduate and undergraduate students working in both areas. 

Carroll was a lead faculty member in the formation of the Quilts of Gee’s Bend in Context website and currently manages the academic content of the site. She is a member of both the UKI Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment and the American Association for Studies in Literature and the Environment, serving as a member of the Diversity Caucus in the American branch. She has recently completed a new ecocritical book, New Woman Ecologies: From Arts and Crafts to the Great War and Beyond, appearing in the Under the Sign of Nature series with the University of Virginia Press in 2019.
