Deborah E. Lewis is originally from the North Country but earned her Bachelor of Arts in Theology from Duke University, then her Masters of Education in English from the University of North Alabama and her Ph.D. in Modern British Literature from the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa. Her major concentration is the Romantic era poets; her doctoral focus was on John Keats explorations of gender-specific power and sexuality in Engendering Death: Keats and the Female Figure and she also qualified in World Novel. In the last decade she has broadened her interests to include British Renaissance history in biographical studies centered on the Tudors and their impact on both the Scots and English courts. She is a fiction writer as well; her novel Killing Cassandra was completed this year and currently is in the market for publication. Before joining the SUNY Potsdam faculty in 2007 she was on the faculties of the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, Dillard University in New Orleans, Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs NY, and St. Lawrence University in Canton.
