Louisa Cameron, Adjunct Professor, received her PhD in cultural anthropology from Columbia University in New York. She earned a BA (magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) from The University of Rochester (Rochester, NY), and completed an additional MA (ABD) in Asian Studies at Seton Hall University in New Jersey. She returned to the classroom in 2009 to complete an ESL teaching certificate at The University of British Columbia, where she studied activity-based learning, which she now applies to her courses in the social sciences at FDU.
A Fulbright and National Science Foundation scholar, Louisa lived in Japan for four years, first as an undergraduate and then as a graduate student conducting fieldwork for her doctoral dissertation on women in the Japanese workplace. A corollary interest during her time in Japan was the gendered symbolism of traditional Japanese Shinto rituals. Upon graduation, she taught courses in anthropology, sociology and Asian studies at The University of British Columbia for six years. Louisa’s current academic interests include gender, women’s issues, history, race/ethnicity and pop culture. With a penchant for foreign languages from an early age, Louisa is conversant in Japanese and Spanish.
In addition to teaching, Louisa studied creative writing in The Writing and Publishing Program at Simon Fraser University, and is currently seeking publication for her first young adult novel, The Red Prince. You can visit her online at: www.louisacameron.com.
