I am Prof. Emerita in Comparative Literature and Gender Studies from the Univ. of S. California. I specialized in Surrealism in the arts, and was the first to present the Women Artists of Surrealism to the art communities in the US. (early seventies). I taught pioneering courses on Ecofeminism at USC and lectured widely on Ecofeminism at conferences, both national and international. I co-created an early conference on Ecofeminism at USC from which was published the book ;REWEAVING THE WORLD : THE EMERGENCE OF ECOFEMINISM.. My previous writings in Theatre, Feminism, Literature, Shamanism and Art all include Ecofeminist perspectives in most of my analyses. I continue to pursue these quests in my writings and public talks today.
