• National Museum of Language Announces New Board of Trustees Member

    We are pleased to introduce you to our newest Board of Trustees member, Shannon Zellars-Strohl.

    Shannon Zellars-Strohl teaches at the Rhode Island School of Design and is currently completing her PhD in Victorian literature. Her research focuses on intersections of traditional religion and seemingly secular supernaturalism in late-Victorian fiction. She is also currently studying self-reflection in contemporary horror cinema and its relationship to a pessimistic narcissism in America. Zellars-Strohl’s teaching and research often inform each other, and she has taught courses about zombies, serial killers, disease and death in Victorian literature, horror cinema and literary hauntings.
