Areas of expertise
Larson's favorite thing about teaching English is getting to read and think about books that are so different from daily life, yet hold so many important connections; and she loves doing this with faculty and students who also enjoy it. Recently she has published articles in areas related to interfaith dialogue and faculty development, and hospitality as a metaphor for teaching. She received the Faculty Excellence Award for Teaching in 2001.
