Meg Lamont received her A.B. in English and American Literature from Brown University in 1999, where she graduated magna cum laude (Brown’s highest honors) and became a member of Phi Beta Kappa. In 2007 she received her Ph.D. in English Literature from UCLA, specializing in the medieval and Renaissance periods.

Most recently she was an assistant professor of English at North Carolina State University, where she taught advanced undergraduate and graduate courses. She has experience teaching literature from the ancient world through the 21st century. A few of her favorite authors are Geoffrey Chaucer, Sir Thomas Malory, Sir Thomas Wyatt the Elder, Christopher Marlowe, William Shakespeare, Emily Brontë, Wilfred Owen, and Virginia Woolf.

On weekends Meg can usually be found surfing, eating chocolate, or, of course, curled up somewhere with a book, often with her daughter Citlali.
