Barbara Gluck is an Associate Professor and Assistant Chair of the English Department. She is also one of the founders and early editors of Encounters: Sentence & Stanza, the Baruch College literary journal. All these positions reflect her deep involvement in literature, students, and teaching. A recipient of the Presidential Excellence Award for Teaching, she has co-taught several Feit Interdisciplinary Seminars on Modernism; Biography, Psychology and Literature, and Contemporary Irish Culture as well as advanced courses in British and modern Irish literature. Prof. Gluck is equally committed to the Great Works courses, both because she enjoys teaching classics outside her area of expertise and because those courses allow her to meet students at all academic levels and from different schools in the college.
A graduate of Barnard College (A.B.), Barbara Gluck received both her M.A. and Ph.D. from Columbia University. She has published on the poetry of T. S. Eliot and her book on James Joyce and Samuel Beckett was written under a Woodrow Wilson Scholarship award. Her current scholarly interests include the playwright Brian Friel and the novelist Roddy Doyle.
In addition to her departmental administrative duties, Prof. Gluck has served on numerous college committees, including the Weissman School Curriculum Committee, the Committee on Academic Standing, and the Committee on the Library.
