After ten years of teaching at a sister institution in the great city of Chicago, Dieleman returned to Ancaster to serve as Dean of Humanities and a professor of English at Redeemer. Her scholarship focuses on Victorian poetry’s intersections with religion and theology. Within that field, she has published on poetry and liturgy (see her scholarly book listed below), poetry and evolutionary thought, and poetry and social reform. She is presently working on theologies of creation in Victorian poetry.
Happily, in Dieleman’s view, the dean position at Redeemer does not preclude time in the classroom. Dieleman therefore teaches in both the English program and Redeemer’s core program.
