Within the Arts and Letters program, Dr. Liana Piehler has often taught courses that have blended literature and the visual arts.  Recent courses have included focus on the Victorian lnadscape as seen by novelists, poets and artists; Victorian women artists and their twentieth century descendants; Provincetown’s arts colony (1900-1950) as a reflection of American culture; and poets as observers of the natural world (from Emily Dickinson in the nineteenth century to Mary Oliver in the twentieth).  Dr. Piehler has also frequently taught The Joy of Scholarly Writing to students in the Arts and Letters and Medical Humanities programs, guiding them on the dissertation journey.
