American students study Bad Girls

As from this autumn, students at Endicott College in the USA will be studying Bad Girls as part of their Popular Culture course.

The course is taught by Professor Nancy Lee-Jones and I’m thrilled that she has chosen to teach the book.

The college, situated near Boston, was founded in 1939 to ‘educate women for greater independence and an enhanced position in the workforce’. It’s now a co-ed private college. The Popular Culture course teaches students to ‘recognize and interpret cultural symbols and to better understand the complex world in which they live’ – so I’m looking forward to hearing what they make of Bad Girls and Holloway Prison.
