Karlyn Crowley is Professor of English and director of the Cassandra Voss Center and Women's and Gender Studies at St. Norbert College. Karlyn’s scholarship focuses on gender and popular culture/religion and the field of Women's and Gender Studies. Her book, Feminism's New Age: Gender, Appropriation, and the Afterlife of Essentialism (SUNY P), examines why so many women are interested in New Age culture rather than civic feminist expression. It was a 2011 finalist for the ForeWordBook of the Year Award in the Women’s Issues category. She writes for Girl w/ Pen: Bridging Feminist Research & Popular Reality. Karlyn has also been long involved in the National Women’s Studies Association.
