Office of the Dean

Dean Kathryn Prince

I’m chronically curious and passionately interested in stories: not just stories that we tell in novels or plays, but also stories that help us understand our planet, the cosmos, the deep past, our distant future… Every kind of story about everything is absolutely fascinating to me. I was that undergraduate student who took every possible elective, eventually settling on English and history as my majors. My research has covered everything from Shakespeare to post-apocalyptic science fiction, and I’ve been a professor of both theatre and English literature, as well as a colleague in interdisciplinary ventures like the Centre for the History of Emotions in Australia and the Medieval and Renaissance Studies program here at uOttawa. The Faculty of Arts is the perfect place for someone like me because my colleagues are top researchers and passionate educators in everything from medieval philosophy to machine learning. I can always find someone to tell me a good story I haven’t heard before. There’s real latitude in the Faculty of Arts to follow your curiosity, as a student and as a professor. I hope that all of our students, even those from other faculties just taking an elective with us, get a sense of how remarkable it is to have that room to roam. It’s how we’ll imagine the stories that shape the future of humanity.
