Carol Mason
Assistant Professor, Women's Studies

Carol Mason is an interdisciplinary scholar focusing on 20th-century American literature and society.  Before arriving at UNLV, she taught literature, women’s studies, and American studies at the University of Minnesota (where she earned a Ph.D. in English), Hobart and William Smith Colleges, and the University of Pittsburgh. A postdoctoral fellowship from the Bunting Institute at Harvard University helped support the research for her first book, Killing for Life: The Apocalyptic Narrative of Pro-life Politics (Cornell University Press, 2002). As a 2002 Rockefeller scholar-in-residence at the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Gender in Appalachia, Mason began work on her second book, tentatively titled Soul on Appalachian Ice, which examines curriculum disputes and opposition to multiracial literature. Her scholarly interest in critiquing right-wing movements complements a background in activism and nonprofit development.
