My name is Megan Friddle and I received my PhD from the Graduate Institute of Liberal Arts at Emory University. My academic research focuses on the history of childhood and adolescence in North America and the intersections of memory, gender, and disability in narrative texts. My dissertation looked specifically at these cultural phenomena in novels for child and young adult readers. This website contains information about the courses I’ve taught, my pedagogy, and the ways I’ve integrated technology in the classroom.

I currently serve as the Director of the National Scholarships & Fellowships Program in Emory University’s Office for Undergraduate Education. In this role, I am able to combine my enthusiasm for undergraduate advising with my training in research design and writing pedagogy in order to shepherd students through the application process for nationally-competitive awards for domestic and international research, study, and professional training.
