Dr. St. Hilaire additionally has interests in epic poetry, Shakespeare, and literary tradition, and is developing a new curiosity in ethics and early modern subjectivity.
In addition to her scholarly pursuits, Dr. St. Hilaire is also embarrassingly obsessed with hockey, and is sure that she could be world-famous if she could just find the time to write a book on the phenomenology of the face-off. (Go Pens!)
