Susan “Rosie” Greenstein earned a PhD in Victorian and African Literatures after teaching in Kenya with the Peace Corps. Her academic career allowed her to explore an array of interests, including designing an Honors Program at an HBCU in Georgia and a Teaching Center at Long Island University. She circled the globe with students on Semester at Sea. Five Osher courses continue the adventure, with topics as diverse as the literature of immigration, graphic novels, and the novels of Jane Austen.
