CANDACE WARD, Associate Professor of English, B.S. University of Florida (1984), M.A. University of Central Florida (1988), Ph.D. University of Alabama (1996), specializes in eighteenth-century British literature, early Anglo-Caribbean literature and culture, and early women's fiction. She has also worked on the editorial staff of College English (1990-92) and South Atlantic Review (1992-93) and at Dover Publications (1993-96). In 2002-03 she was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to the University of the West Indies, Jamaica, and an American Association of University Women postdoctoral fellowship. Her book, Desire and Disorder: Fever, Fictions, and Feeling in English Georgian Culture (Bucknell University Press, 2007), explores one of the eighteenth-century's most persistent tropes, the fevered body. Her work on the English Department's 2006 Literature Colloquium reflects her current research and teaching interests in early Caribbean studies.
