Prof. O'Donoghue has been teaching at St. John's since 1988. During this time she has taught Composition and Rhetoric, Modern Poetry, Women's Voices in Literature, Contemporary Literature, Great Themes in Literature, The Short Story, and Visualizing American Literature. Her current research interest is in nineteenth-century American women poets, and is in the process of recovering Laura Catherine Redden Searing, a deaf poet, whose Sounds from Secret Chambers has fallen through the cracks of literary history. For the last two years, Prof. O'Donoghue has been using web-based tools in all of her classes.
