Janet MacLennan was born in Canada on another island in the Atlantic… but much colder. In 1996 she received her B. A. in Community Studies from the University College of Cape Breton (now Cape Breton University) where she was first introduced to the field of “human communication.” She then pursued graduate work in communication studies at Ohio University in Athens, where she received her M. A. in 1998 and her Ph. D. and a Graduate Certificate in Women’s Studies in 2000, teaching all the while. She was thrilled to accept her first tenure-track teaching position in the Department of English at the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras campus and is now a Full Professor (Catedrática) with tenure. Her outside interests mostly involve nature, adventure, and travel.
