Contact: Robert Brooke, rbrooke1@unl.edu
Sarah Ruffing Robbins is Lorraine Sherley Professor of Literature and past dean at Texas Christian University. Her most recent book, “Learning Legacies: Archives to Action Through Women’s Cross Cultural Teaching,” but Americanists may know her work on Harriet Beecher Stowe and her 2015 Transatlanic 19th century collection, composition studies her work on 19th century women’s narratives, and Place Studies her formative work with the Keeping and Conserving American Communities project (one of the first deep place based education programs).

Sarah is working with the National Writing Project to launch “WRITING HOME,” her third major national grant for NWP, focused on exploring the representation of American homeplaces in several parts of the country. Nebraska is lucky to be one of the sites in her new program. The Nebraska Writing Project will be coordinating with Homestead National Monument and Agate Fossil Beds National Monument on that work.
