Dr. Frattarola is the Director of the Language and Communication Centre. Over the past twenty years, she has taught first-year writing courses, as well as classes on modernism and twentieth-century literature. Her book, Modernist Soundscapes: Auditory Technology and the Novel (University Press of Florida 2018), explores how early auditory technologies such as the phonograph, headphones, talkie, and tape recorder, subtly changed the public's sense of auditory perception, and how those changes are reflected in and shaped the modernist novel. Aside from her publications in modernism and sound studies, which can be found in journals such as Woolf Studies Annual, Mosaic, Modern Drama, Journal of Modern Literature, Studies in the Novel, and Genre, Dr. Frattarola studies the pedagogy behind best teaching practices for helping students become effective readers and writers.
