Rebecca Davis (MLitt, Glasgow, 2016) is an instructor at Murray State College in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. In addition to first-year writing courses, she also teaches Introduction to Folklore, Introduction to Literature, and Creative Writing. Fantasy literature, the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, fairy tales, and young adult literature form the crux of Rebecca’s research interest; her master’s thesis examined the subversion of the roles of hero, heroine, and villain in modern retellings of fairy tales. Outside of the academic sphere, Rebecca is a member of the production team for The Prancing Pony Podcast, a podcast dedicated to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, where she serves as “Barliman” and answers listener questions. She also happens to be extremely fond of tea.
