Charmion Gustke's courses focus on the interdisciplinary practices of writing, reading, and social action. Her scholarly interests include transatlantic literary studies, South African literature, and the work of Willa Cather, on which Dr. Gustke has published articles. In the summer of 2015, she was awarded a National Endowment for the Humanities grant to study Transcendentalism and Reform in the Age of Emerson, Thoreau, and Fuller in Concord, Massachusetts. She is committed to community engagement and employs her service-learning classes to connect students to non-profit organizations such as The Next Door, Dismas House, and The Nashville Food Project in her continued support of sustainable food practices, social advocacy, and the liberal arts.
