Wayne State professor earns Fulbright Award

August 6, 2013


Jaime Goodrich, an assistant professor at Wayne State University, has earned a Fulbright Award, one of the most prestigious awards in the world. The 1997 Cadillac High School graduate will conduct research and teach at the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom. She joins a list of Fulbright scholars that includes 43 Nobel Prize and 87 Pulitzer Prize winners. "I always loved school and reading from an early age," said Goodrich. "But in high school, my English teacher Penny Phelps got me interested in research." Goodrich's research area is early modern British literature and she has published a number of articles on women writers. While on the Fulbright, she will research and edit the manuscript writings produced by modern Benedictine nuns in continental convents for English women.
