After several years working part-time in the Writing Lab,  Rita transitioned to a full-time position in 1984.  This allowed her to address her love of literature as well as writing.  She created two new courses:  By and AboutWomen (a women’s literature course) and Science through Science Fiction, originally an honors course combining scientific presentations with literary analysis.  She also designed a composition course based on writings by well-known peace activists.  She continues to enjoy the opportunity to engage students in learning about their own lives both  through writing and through the  study of literature.
