Susanna Hoeness-Krupsaw is an associate professor of English. She holds a Ph. D. in English from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. In her doctoral studies, she specialized in modern American fiction (minor emphases in modern British and French fiction). She wrote her dissertation on the role of the family in the novels of E. L. Doctorow.

She currently teaches some composition and humanities courses, the second part of the American literature survey, women's literature (when it is offered), and the occasional seminar on the American novel. Her research interests include contemporary American and Canadian writers and women's literature, and she has published on Jack Kerouac, Simone de Beauvoir, Colette, the feminist literary critic Elaine Showalter, and the Irish playwright Anne Devlin. Her recent interest in Canadian fiction led to the development of a course on this subject. In her spare time, Susanna likes to read and travel.
