*As Dartmouth’s Chief Academic Officer, Carolyn Dever is instrumental in long-range institutional planning and implementation, creating and overseeing programs that ensure Dartmouth’s academic excellence. She came to Dartmouth from Vanderbilt University, where she served as Dean of the College of Arts and Science and, earlier, as Executive Dean of the College. Appointed Provost in January 2014, Dever brings to Dartmouth more than a decade of leadership experience in higher education administration, a strong commitment to teaching, and a record of academic accomplishment.
Provost Dever is also Professor of English at Dartmouth. A scholar of gender studies and 19th-century British literature and culture, she is the author of two books, Death and the Mother from Dickens to Freud (Cambridge), and Skeptical Feminism: Activist Theory, Activist Practice (Minnesota). She is also the editor of The Literary Channel: The Inter-National Invention of the Novel (Princeton), and The Cambridge Companion to Anthony Trollope (Cambridge). Her current work focuses on the collaborative journals of the Victorian poets, “Michael Field,” a pseudonym adopted by 19th century British authors Katherine Bradley and Edith Cooper.
Carolyn is a graduate of Boston College and holds MA and PhD degrees in English and American Literature and Language from Harvard University. Prior to joining the Vanderbilt faculty, she was a faculty member at NYU where she received the University’s “Golden Dozen” award for undergraduate teaching.
