Dr. Overstreet’s interest in young adult literature has culminated in writing two books that examine this literature—the most recent being vampire literature. Her interest in popular culture has led her to teach several First Year Seminars focusing on the television work of Joss Whedon and the films of Joel and Ethan Coen. Additionally, Dr. Overstreet teaches writing, children’s and young adult literature and teaches future teachers to teach writing, literature, and language arts.
