Sheila Sandapen, PhD teaches in the First-Year Writing Program at Drexel. As a young child she would sometimes leave the playground during school recess to sneak into the library and read in peace. It was this attitude that sealed her fate to be a writer and English Instructor.
Selected Publications:Reflecting her eclectic interests in cultural studies, women studies, history and film, Sandapen’s publications include book and film reviews and articles on World War I Aviation, Jane Austen and British Cinema and Dr. Who. She is currently researching and writing on the American 1950s children’s author Edward Eager.
