Overview

Teaching and Research Interests:

Dr. Rebekah Greene teaches LMC 3403 (Technical Communication) in sections that are affiliated with Georgia Tech's Center for Serve-Learn-Sustain (SLS). Greene puts her previous professional experience in small business development, banking, customer service, and training to work in her Technical Communication classrooms. Outside of the classroom, her research and publications examine Victorian literature through the lens of material culture theory, illuminating how Victorians thought about and engaged with the things that shaped their world. Greene's current research projects focus on the representation of material culture in Victorian literature, on the ways that Victorian influences still permeate today’s museums and their technical communications, and on pedagogical methods for introducing students to the literature and culture of the long nineteenth century.

Current Manuscript: 

Greene's current manuscript, Uncertain Treasure: Material Culture and the Scottish Adventure, considers the development of the adventure genre and the Scottish publishing industry in the long nineteenth century.
