Professor Natasha Walker

Instructor of English


Natasha Nicole Walker teaches Composition and runs the English department's writing lab. Her studies focus on literature of the diaspora, negritude, and Return South Migration. She has worked with Dr. Mary Zeigler on Gullah Geechee Studies through Sapelo Island Lexical Connections (SILC), as well as with Dr. Brennan Collins on Return South Migration through the Southern American Studies Association (SASA). Walker was also exposed to diaspora studies and began her scholarship of spirituality in Nigeria, the Caribbean, and the Americas. Her most recent conference paper deals with the abiku--the spirit child--in diasporic literature, which she presented to the College Language Association (CLA) in 2012. Her other academic interests include hybrid pedagogy as well as digital rhetoric and composition.
