Dr. Wendy Shilton is an Associate Professor in the Department of English. She joined UPEI in 1996 with interdisciplinary specialties in nineteenth-century poetics, the rhetoric of music and gender, and writing/writing-across-the-curriculum.
"In high school, I participated in student activities geared toward politics and government, so studying Political Science at UPEI made the most sense for me. I was unsure where my degree would take me, but I was interested in what I studied—that’s what mattered."
