Senior Lecturer in English


Known to many students as "CDBL," Carol DeBoer-Langworthy is the editor of the autobiography and diaries of Neith Boyce (University of New Mexico Press, 2003) and a past president of the Association for Documentary Editing. Currently she is working on a literary biography of Boyce, a modernist American woman writer who lived from 1872-1951; and has received numerous fellowships in support of that project. She is the recipient of the H.D. Fellowship from Yale's Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, a Senior Fulbright Lectureship to Turkey, and the Helm Fellowship (twice) to the Lilly Library of Indiana University. CDBL also is the current editor of Lifewriting Annual, a publication of critical and scholarly essays and reviews that explore the full range of lifewriting—biography, autobiography, memoir, journals, diaries, and letters.
