Diana enjoys teaching Victorian literature, contemporary fiction, and film and literature. These interests are reflected in her interim course on "Nineteenth-Century Myths and Twentieth-Century Movies" (in which students read (and watch) Frankenstein, Dracula, and Dr. Jerkyll and Mr. Hyde); a wide-ranging seminar on "cultural studies" and literature; and her newest classroom adventure, "Nineteenth to Twenty-First Century Novels."
Diana grew up in the Twin Cities and returned to Minnesota after twenty years as a student and then a professor on the East Coast and in Chicago. She is married to Paul Thiboutot, Dean of Admissions at Carleton College; they have two daughters, Lucy and Lily.
