Sara Danger, Associate Professor, Chair
College of Arts and Sciences 221
Professor Danger came to Valparaiso University in 2004 as a Lilly Postdoctoral Fellow in English and the Humanities; she joined the English department in 2006 and began as department chair in 2016.
In the classroom Professor Danger encourages students to critically grapple with the complexities of literature and to stretch their empathetic responses to the various perspectives raised by texts. She values literature for placing readers inside profound questions of human experience and cognition, and wants to share that with her students.
Her teaching interests include nineteenth-century British and American literature, visual culture, gender studies, and children's literature.
