Robin Inboden asked for a library card for her fifth birthday and has been reading feverishly ever since. By the time she was in high school, her passions for nineteenth-century British literature and American movies of the 1930’s and 1940’s were firmly established. These tastes led her to Kenyon College for a B.A. in English and to Cornell University for the M.A. and Ph.D. in nineteenth-century British literature. At Wittenberg since 1989, she has concentrated her teaching interests in Victorian literature and the Hollywood Classical Cinema. Her most recent professional presentation was on Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and she has published and presented on such diverse topics as Tennyson, Wordsworth, Hitchcock, George Eliot, and screwball comedy. When not reading students’ papers and Victorian literature or watching old movies, she enjoys home improvement and decorating, gardening, baking, collecting vintage clothing and accessories, and cheering somewhat obsessively for the football Buckeyes (and her husband’s Huskers).
