Julie Goodspeed-Chadwick, Ph.D., has been named an IUPUI Chancellor’s Professor, the first professor from IUPUC to receive this honor in its fifty-year history as a regional center of IUPUI. This is the most distinguished appointment an individual faculty member can attain at IUPUI, and it recognizes senior faculty members who display a record of extensive accomplishment and leadership in teaching, research, and campus service. Chancellor’s Professors retain their title throughout their tenure at IUPUI and contribute to the development of IUPUI as an academic community of exceptional quality and integrity while advancing their disciplines through the creation and application of knowledge.

Goodspeed-Chadwick, who has been teaching at IUPUC since 2008, specializes in twentieth-century American literature, transatlantic modernism, women and literature, women’s and gender studies, and trauma studies. She is the founding and current Director of the Office of Student Research (OSR), where she directs and supervises the support, funding, publicity, and dissemination of research by students in tandem with faculty mentors, and currently serves as the campus liaison for the statewide Indiana University Undergraduate Research Conference (IUURC). Goodspeed-Chadwick is also the co-founder of the Office for Women at IUPUC, and currently serves on the IUPUI Office for Women Advisory Council.

"Dr. Goodspeed-Chadwick excels in all areas of faculty work – teaching, service, and scholarship. She devotes her many talents to enriching our students’ lives and advancing our university’s mission," said George Towers, Ph.D., Head of the Division of Liberal Arts at IUPUC.

In addition to numerous published articles and chapter contributions to books, Goodspeed-Chadwick has published two books of her own including Reclaiming Assia Wevill: Sylvia Plath, Ted Hughes, and the Literary Imagination in 2019, and Modernist Women Writers and War: Trauma and the Female Body in Djuna Barnes, H.D., and Gertrude Stein in 2011. The Collected Writings of Assia Wevill, co-edited with Peter K. Steinberg, will be published in November 2021 by LSU Press (lsupress.org/books/detail/collected-writings-of-assia-wevill).
