Favorite Gender Studies class/professor/memory from your experience at Notre Dame:

I loved so many of my professors, but particularly Charlene Avallone and Gloria Jean Masciarotte, who were both absolutely terrific.

Your experience with Gender Studies/gender issues at Notre Dame:

I was one of the very first wave of students to go through the gender studies program, which I remember quite fondly.

How your Gender Studies education has impacted your life:

It has influenced my writing from early days till now. I'm got a third book coming out and many of the stories reflect some of the concerns and questions first raised in college.
