Julie Kim
Professor of English

PhD, University of Michigan

During my teaching career at Northeastern Illinois University, I have taught twenty different courses at various levels (introductory writing and general education courses to graduate seminars) and topics (from early modern British poetry to postmodern American fiction). 

Fairly regularly, I teach 3 different literature surveys (British Literature from Beginnings-1750; British Literature from 1750-Present; American Literature from 1865-Present) and 3 different “Major Author” courses (Shakespeare Comedies and Romances; Shakespeare Tragedies; Milton).  Other courses I teach on a rotation include: Shaw and Modern British Drama, Detective Fiction, Twentieth Century Fiction from 1945-Present, and Graduate Seminar on the English Novel.

At present, my research interests are two-fold: early modern British literature (especially Milton) and contemporary detective fiction.
