Research Interests

Prof Lank's undrgraduate and beginning graduate research interests varied widely, she can still be seen reading one of the many talented female supernatural authors as reading women's history texts.  She loves to put history into pop culture context because she feels students remember it easier that way.  Prof Lank has done research on Disney's Celebration, FL creation as well as Feminist Manifesto's.

Current research focuses on compassionate fatigue and compassionate detachment in the education field.
