Dr. Roxie James joined the faculty of Northwestern Oklahoma State University in the fall of 2016. Her course offerings include Writing and Literacy and Composition I and II, and her teaching and research interests include Romantic and Victorian Literature, Restoration and Eighteenth Century British Literature, American Literature to circa 1900, Children’s Literature, Class Theory, and Technical Writing.

Dr. James received her Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in 2006. She received her Master of Arts in English from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana, in 2008, and her Doctor of Philosophy in English from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2014.

Her dissertation is entitled “Out o’ sight, out o’ mind”: The Progression of Dirt in Victorian Literature And Culture, and it investigates the cultural construction of dirt and its complex ties to class and place in Victorian literature and culture. It argues that dirt is a potent symbol that makes Victorian anxieties associated with class instability, weakened imperial control, and the loss or re-appropriation of order more visible to the masses.
