Retired English Professor Interviewed in The Atlantic

Recently, retired Queen's professor Dr. Gwynn Dujardin, who taught Early Modern Literature in our department, was interviewed by The Atlantic in an article called “Fatigue Can Shatter a Person” by Ed Yong. Gwynn is a literary historian, published author on pedagogy, and medically retired with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). She was a three-time winner of the Fourth-Year’s Choice Award for Teaching in our Department, and she is currently working on a book on the cultural history of fatigue. We are so proud of your continued work, Gwynn!
