A native of Long Island and graduate of Colgate University, Professor Morgan-Zayachek returned to New York in 2000 after spending the previous decade at Big 10 universities in the Midwest. She received a doctorate in English from Indiana University in 1998, specializing in Irish studies, and completed a two-year lectureship at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. She has received research grants and teaching commendations at both schools, and her publications include essays on the film Michael Collins and the novels of Irish author Edna O'Brien. Her current research focuses on the influence of radio in Ireland, and her essay on Irish quiz programs during WWII appeared in the winter 2001 edition of History Ireland. She has also introduced and co-edited a collection of essays, A Century of Irish Drama: Widening the Stage (Indiana UP, 2001). She teaches courses in composition, critical theory, and Irish, British and American literature, and has a particular interest in William Butler Yeats.
