Pronouns: she, her

Sørina Higgins holds a Ph.D. from Baylor University, where she was a Presidential Scholar, Teacher of Record, Graduate Writing Center Consultant, and English Department Representative to the Graduate Student Association. In addition, she is a faculty member at Signum University and leader of the TexMoot planning team. Her academic interests include British and Irish Modernism, the Inklings, Arthuriana, theatre, the occult, and magic. Her dissertation, entitled From Thaumaturgy to Dramaturgy, looks at modernist British and Irish playwrights who were initiated members of occult secret societies, examining how their ceremonial magic rituals influenced their plays, and consequently what the role alternative spiritualities played in modernist literature. Sørina earned her M.A. from Middlebury College’s Bread Loaf School of English, where she wrote about Sehnsucht in the works of C. S. Lewis.
